Ghostly International’s marquee artist Matthew Dear recently linked with scientists at General Electric’s Global Research Center and gathered 1,000 samples from a plethora of machinery to create 3-minute dance jam “Drop Science.” The result lies somewhere between the feel of Dear’s album Leave Luck To Heaven and his work as Audion. How can you get so many grooves from acoustic tests used to tell if machines are working properly? Must be a Detroit thing. Check out the track  below and read more about the recording process here.
