Back in 2011, Pittsburgh producer Perris Dietrich a.k.a Shisa dropped his sophomore album (memory) on the Amdiscs label. The record was definitely a savvy assortment of production styles, taking bits from both the noise and glo-fi spectrums of electronic and mixing them into into a sort of rich atmospheric broth. A personal favorite of mine from that record, Sweet Sptmbr, took a plunderphonics approach to the Airiel song "Shirley Temple Tidal Wave," coating the sugary walls of the song with dense layers of static and grime, to interesting effect. Shisa's back today, however, with something a bit more breezy, with the release of "Hearts," his new Utada Hikaru-sampling collab single with Cali producer Choongum. The track's been on the net for a minute now, the video for the song dropped back in May, but this release is definitely worth your time - the single includes the OG track and several excellent remixes, including a completely amazing Le Sphinxx rework of the track. Cop a listen to "Hearts" below.

Stream: Shisa x Choongum - Hearts
