Diskotopia founder and label co-head Matt Lyne delivers the second full-length A Taut Line album, Mutual Prints. Picking up where 2013’s Nitriding Portrait LP left off and expanding even further abound with his unique brand of 4th World exotica,Mutual Prints is a geo continental tour of the vastly varying influences that comprise A Taut Line’s sonic palette. Proving a striking contrast to Lyne's other output as one half of Greeen Linez, Mutual Prints is his most expansive work under the A Taut Line alias to date, with fantasy and nightmares colliding at the same momentum as the genre clashes, and Diskotopia are extremely proud to offer a glimpse into this immersive, weird and wonderful world.

The incendiary forming new age patterns of opener Littoral Psalm launches the Mutual Prints voyage straight into a disorientating cyclone leaving us washed up ashore on the tropical 4th World island of earthy roller Bamboo Holography. Stait Foreign Country leads us deeper into the undergrowth and plays like a passport page stamped from the Congo, '80s East Harlem and Berlin concurrently. After half-awakening from the tribalist dream-sequence cypher of Izu Kogen we are found dazed and drenched in the intense fever-ridden '90s techno & house inspired Care and subsequently slightly more euphorically,Flowt.

The kaleidoscopic Sagami Dawn, a first-light peak-top view of the ocean provides the only semblance of clarity before we've dived into the glistening Shimoda No Odoriko, swimming with a soul-soaked percussive bounce. Midnight Shoreline ebbs and flows the remnants of disassociated mixtape jams recorded a world away as Pageturn snaps into a multi-timbral workout of Eski progression. Growth Diffraction’s junglist footsteps sprint across an evolving gamelan landscape before yielding into the final chimerical march of 1oz Dry, a stoic and ethereal epilogue for this sweeping journey.
