Over the years, Tyler St Clair has been known to exploit archaic electronics to great effect. His penchant for the unconventional is best on display in the form of his Milwaukee-based record label ‘Radiograffiti’ where he’s curated a roster of like-minded boundary-pushers and sonic destroyers. He’s affiliated with the world’s first D.I.Y synthesizer hackspace/storefront ‘Modular Addict’ and skirts the fringe of ubiquity by making music under a multitude of aliases.
Despite his usual aggressive approach to music, his latest project, Black Lines, Din Sky, showcases his most accessible work to date. The radio-friendly “misery.dev – select” 7-inch comfortably spent a few weeks on top of Milwaukee’s Bandcamp chart and has quickly become a must-have within distributor networks, where it’s available in more than 15 countries, across six continents.
St Clair has also released material under Midwest hardcore label Distort, played Blip Fest (NY), and the infamous Schizophrenia warehouse parties where he once shared the stage with members of the Detroit S.W.A.T. His music is featured in the home brew ‘Tracker Hero’ video game, and he made an appearance in the ‘Viva Amiga’ documentary, which recently toured multiple worldwide film festival circuits. His upcoming full-length “misery.dev” is set for an early 2019 release.
