Ghostly International, the New York-based record label and art company, just dropped a hauntingly beautiful visualizer. Accompanying funky beats from Patricia, the visualizer uses analog video techniques to create pictures from a Vectrex game console.
Brooklyn-based Max Ravitz, the artist behind the tunes and the visualizer, has been working with Ghostly since 2014. He collaborated with Josephine, his partner, to create the visualizer for Downlink, a teaser track from his upcoming album Maxyboy. Check it out below!
Max Ravitz has been producing lo-fi house beats under the moniker Patricia since the project’s inception. Ghostly’s house-centric side project, Spectral Sound, provided a fitting home for his previous EP, and 2017 full-length album.
Working to bridge the LA-NY culture gap, Ghostly visited Los Angeles last September for a “Ghostly Knowledge Share” event. The company shares many Pacific Northwest values, such as ethical practices, experimental use of technology, and forward thinking.
Returning with a new sound, Patricia’s upcoming album, Maxyboy, combines “electro, acid, IDM, and techno” influences. Moving out of the house world, Maxyboy will be released under Ghostly proper.
The accompanying visualizer’s use of analog techniques mirrors Ravitz’ preference for analog mixing techniques. A perfect blend of art and music, Downlink marks an exciting coming-to-age point for Max Ravitz. We expect great things from his upcoming album.
