Look, we can't blame you for not keeping up with all of Tadd Mullinix's aliases over the years. Why, his history with Ghostly International alone goes as far back as the its very first long player (the nearly 20-year-old Winking Make a Face). And then there's the deeply underground dance records he's dropped via his own Bopside imprint and the producer's dearly missed Rewind Records. The latter was a jungle outlet co-founded by Mullinix's longtime friend Todd Osborn, and while it's been largely silent in recent years, it's easy to imagine Mullinix's new X-Altera alias landing on the label. Due out this Friday through Ghostly, the project's self-titled debut is rooted in rugged drum 'n' bass rhythms but softened by Detroit-schooled deep techno.
