Com Truise
Com Truise is one of the many personas of producer and designer Seth Haley, born and raised in upstate New York and operating out of a 12’-overrun apartment in Princeton, New Jersey. An admitted synth obsessive, Com Truise is the maker of an experimental and bottom heavy style he calls “mid-fi synth-wave, slow-motion funk”.

Haley’s been making music on the side for roughly a decade—going through pseudonyms like toothbrushes (Sarin Sunday, SYSTM, Airliner)—first as a DJ, and currently, as an excavator of softer, window-fogging synth-wave.

While subliminally informed by both parental record collections and hints of faded electronics product design, Haley’s Com Truise project isn’t just nostalgia capitalization. There are fragments (read:

DNA strands) of Joy Division, New Order, and the Cocteau Twins, but it’s like you’re hearing them through the motherboard of a waterlogged Xbox—demented and modern. He’s got a way of making familiar things sound beautifully hand-smeared.

The first Com Truise release was the Cyanide Sisters EP—distributed for free on the AMdiscs label—where mellow stone-outs like “Sundriped” and “Slow Peels” sat next to harder IDM bangers (“BASF Ace” and “IWYWAW”) and bumpy alt-funk trips (“Norkuy” and “Komputer”). After that came a single “Pyragony/Trypyra,” and a series of eclectic podcast mixes titled “Komputer Cast.” Now comfortably situated amidst the Ghostly roster, he’s prepping his next warped pillage, and hopefully not changing that name again.

"With one foot planted on the West Coast & the other firmly entrenched in the deep web, Cory Haynes aka QUARRY has bypassed the URL/IRL divide with an original sound that adheres to the conventions of neither. His tracks occur in some ethereal, transitory space: as if one is uploading their consciousness before it finally fades. Beyond QUARRY's own material, in late 2011 he founded STYLSS, which is home to an international team of inventive producers, whom are each also carving their own path. STYLSS has survived & surpassed the wildly rippling trends of internet-enabled bass music to become a musical entity & a music community all its own. QUARRY continues to forge new frontiers in the electronic world so expect plenty of surprises in the year to come; he certainly won't be on the next bandwagon, but he probably helped build it." --- Ben Carvalho
