Vinyl LP pressing. Ancient Methods is an album by Chicago-based producer Spectacular Diagnostics. A big bang of beatmaking matter: from cut-up jazz keys to distorted sci-fi movie dialogues. And from echoes of traditional Bollywood chants to three features by Billy Woods, ELUCID & Nosaj who, in contrast, break down traditions to shape their own. The album was created on a hotbed of productivity this year. His Natural Mechanics LP on UK label Group BraCil was released back in May, which earned his beatscapes praise by The Wire Magazine, BBC Radio 6, Bandcamp Daily, Gary Suarez' Cabbages, among other outlets. Last month, Lewis Recordings announced a second Spectacular Diagnostics-produced Kid Acne album. To top that off, he's featured on Wagram Music's recent Trip Hop Vibes Vol. 3 compilation (with the track" Yellow. Plates," an early taste of Ancient Methods). Plus he makes an appearance together with Koncept Jack$on on next month's Gangster Music Vol. 2 compilation by Gangster Doodles on All City Records, alongside the likes of Knxwledge, Zeroh, Black Milk, DaM-FunK, Teebs, and Open Mike Eagle.
