Some of what makes up the Apple Music exclusive video album ECHOPLEX (LIVE 2021)—which was assembled from recordings over 21 and 22 August 2021—may sound familiar, but the vast majority of it is the artist in his element, creating on the fly. “It was a real challenge to do,” he says, “because both of my albums were all improv. So it's kind of hard to go back and learn it to recreate it, especially with a lot of analogue [synthesiser] sets, because you're just turning knobs. You can't recreate that every day.” The biggest surprise here, though, may be the guest appearance of Christine and the Queens, whose upcoming album DEAN is in the process of producing. “We both like to do real nerdy, intricate music,” he says of their collaboration, the first glimpse of which is “RAHIM LIVES”. “We're going crazy on everything.”
