My Simulacra 05:37


2lanes is proud to announce the next single, TINCTURE/ MY SIMULACRA, from his recently minted label
AUTO SHOP. The two-tracker finds the artist both deepening his expansive sound and honing it to weave
seamlessly into any DJ set. “TINCTURE / MY SIMULACRA” solidifies the cinematic textures and rusty low-end
percussive drive of 2lanes’ earlier releases this year, “Diamond Rain EP'' & “Sid Ranger Redux EP.” Spending much
of this past year on the road, 2lanes dove headfirst into the contemporary electronic music world, meeting an array of
new and exciting producers, some of which are featured remixers on this release.

On the A side, take a dose of TINCTURE and see just how far the rabbit hole goes. Inspired by raving all
night with friends, 2lanes linked with Detroit-based singer AKILLACO for a wild talking track like none other. We all
know those moments at the party when both nothing and everything makes sense. You want to be prophetic but you
just make everyone laugh. You think about the past, future, & present all at once. This is the ultimate message of
TINCTURE, which AKILLACO emphatically points out. The long-winded musing is underlied by a heavy swung style
beat that 2lanes fans have come to know well. Frequent 2lanes collaborator Salar Ansari joins the fun for the steamy,
guitar-laden Howling Diablo remix that could as easily be played at a forest rave as a sleazy dive bar a la Coyote
Ugly. Purelink’s MILLIA reduces the solution to an even dubbier chill out mix that begs to be played in the early

On the B side, we have the bass-heavy vision quest MY SIMULACRA. Ancient percussion meets modern
sub bass–and together, they transport you to a new plane of being. This track also features performances from a few
regular 2lanes sonic cohorts. Detroit keyboard prodigy Ian Fink (Scott Grooves Ensemble, Omar S) evokes celestial
moments with a memotron solo, and Jonah Baseball (Overtone Series) provides a stargate-sounding break beat. MY
SIMULACRA features two amazing remixes. The First is from Baltimore-based club aficionado JIALING and the
second is a prime cut of rough and ready machine phunk from Los Angele’s 1morning.
