British producer Iglooghost is preparing to release his debut album Neō Wax Bloom on September 29, 2017 via Brainfeeder, including a limited edition 2xLP clear vinyl format featuring original artwork by Iglooghost, a Riso-printed comic booklet, and a Neō Wax Bloom character sticker sheet. Today, he shares a new track from the record: “White Gum”.
“‘White Gum’ takes place during a fight between Yomi – a monk made of multi-coloured fog – and Uso – a cloaked bug bandit,” Iglooghost explains. “Nimbly hopping across levitating fruit, the two beings frantically fire lasers at each other.”

On September 29, 2017, Iglooghost will release his debut album Neō Wax Bloom, almost two years to the day since he made his debut as a teenager on Flying Lotus’s Brainfeeder imprint with the Chinese Nü Year EP — four tracks documenting the time-traveling adventures of a gelatinous worm-shaped creature called Xiangjiao.
Expanding on this story, Neō Wax Bloom follows the events surrounding two giant eyeballs crashing into the mysterious world of Mamu. Across its 11 tracks, Neō Wax Bloom finds Iglooghost in rude health, building a typically intense, hysterical, borderline batshit crazy soundtrack, introducing new characters to his fantastical world and inviting back old friends Mr. Yote and Cuushe for the ride.
In the words of Iglooghost — “When a pair of giant eyeballs crash into the strange, misty world of Mamu, the mysterious forces that govern nature itself are disrupted. A life cycle of transforming creatures is thrown off balance, and the odd looking inhabitants of Mamu are forced to adapt to this calamity. These inhabitants include Yomi – a multicoloured pom-pom monk; Lummo – a wise blind witch training a band of melon coloured babies; and Uso – a sneaky bug thief hidden in a green cloak – as well as many others. As their respective stories begin to interlock, the mysteries surrounding the giant eyeballs are slowly revealed.”
