It’s the work of a watchful outsider in wide-screen observation mode, and an album whose structure builds in a way reminiscent of life. Or, to put it another way, the album presents a life in three distinct, unpredictable sections, from the blank slate of ‘Adrift’ in the first days of life to the melancholy optimism that others will continue when you’re gone that is ‘Daybreak’.
An explosive leap into the full-length format, ‘Human’ is also the debut of one of the most respected producers in electronic music. Resident Advisor has three times named Cooper one of their top DJs or live acts, while also comparing his work to Goreki and Glass, and Beatport named him one of its top 10 artists of 2013. He’s lovingly reworked several key players in the contemporary classic performance scene including Michael Nyman, OlafurArnalds, Nils Frahm and Tom Hodge, as well as transforming the work of huge indie stars like Hot Chip, Au Revoir Simone, BRAIDS, and FC Kahuna’s classic Hayling into downtempo, meditative masterpieces of glitch, beats and fragility.
