CMD (aka Cyan) is a DJ, producer and writer based in Montréal. She is the host of modular_systems on CKUT 90.3 FM, a program that has become a reliable local outlet for deep electronic sounds of all kinds, from experimental and noise to techno, house and beyond.
Following her releases on pertin_nce, Low Noise Productions and Fur Trade Recordings, basic_sounds is honoured to present CMD’s latest EP, Ice Daggers. This release features three tracks inspired by water, form and movement: “Sea Glass” is the name given to small bits of broken glass that are ground smooth by the movement of the ocean and cast like frosted jewels upon the beach, “River Bed” sonically imagines the incremental layering of silt in waterways, and “Ice Daggers” is a reminder of the pulsing sensation of skin submerged in snow.
