about

Manchester based producer AlgernonCornelius is back, announcing the imminent arrival of Botanical - the 2nd instalment of the sci-fi triptych, following the release of the Sarni Deli EP back in March.

‘Arawak’ is lead single taken from the album and is accompanied by a video directed by artistic collaborator Boujie Bantwon. A hypnotic synth driven introduction where tribal rhythms meet Dr. Who, as utterances of patois and sirens can be heard smouldering over the top. A duppy-riddled rabbit hole into the realm of Botanical. 2nd single ‘Garden Skull’ is driven by bass, horns and alien poly-rhythms as its bewitching future-dub stomps with elegance and intricacy.

Botanical tells the story of a journey into the cerebellum of rural Jamaica in search of a supposed ancestral past which unexpectedly leads down a dark path of surreal revelations and hypermagic discoveries. AlgernonCornelius excites sub-frequencies, summons insectile glitches and sketches rhizome beats to paint a twisted allegory of transcendence; inspired by Jamaican bass culture, tropical plant life and the fact that the island has more churches per people than any other country in the world.
