The Kansas City synth overlord Umberto is only a week away from dropping his new album, Confrontations, coming out on Not Not Fun. Umberto has gone back at it creating a masterfully composed record with drones to allow yourself to transcend while building an interconnecting web of retro synth lines to bring you back to that dark, foggy dancefloor when it's all said and done. Put your headphones on and let the stream below take you on a haunting night joy ride as you work.
If the record isn't enough, Umberto will begin an overseas tour starting Feburary 27th. Tour dates below.
