Recorded sporadically between 2016 and 2018 while away from his typical studio set up, the latest from Al Lover, Existential Everything, continues a thread of colorful but meditative inner journeys -- what he playfully calls "music to be introspective in public to." What began with anxious spirals of dubbed-out psych atmospheres on past works like Zodiak Versions and Interference Patterns finds some resolution on Existential Everything, with a dynamic flow inflected as much by Al's kosmische influences as experimental trap and southern hip hop. While his past works tended to be relatively focused and tense, with moments of meandering exploration, Existential Everything is sprawling and relaxed offering a rich comedown after many dark but engrossing head-trips.
Since 2013, Al Lover has been busy releasing a slew of projects on multiple labels (Stolen Body Records, The Reverberation Appreciation Society, Fuzz Club Records, Hoga Nord Rekords, PNKSLM Records and more), as well as collaborating with artists such as Goat, Anton Newcombe, White Fence and Cairo Liberation Front, all while touring extensively, producing the Elevated Transmissions Podcast and working with Levitation and Desert Daze festivals as their official DJ. Al currently resides in Los Angeles, California.
