P. Stoops Album Release/ITEM/Jul Big Green

When: Fri., Dec. 9, 9 p.m. 2016

Skillfully blending the various circles he walks in -- turntable traditions, classical music education, folk composition -- p.stoops brings a unique element to Cleveland’s electronic scene. Tonight, he officially releases his new album, Ancient Computers, and we’re excited to see how that plays out. We checked out some of the unmastered tracks ahead of time, and it’s pretty cool stuff: Imagine Hawaiian steel guitars mingling with volcanic springs of orchestral strings, all sampled against hip-hop beats. It’s heady, it’s danceable and it’s entirely of its own world. Stoops is also a former Scene intern, and we’ve enjoyed watching his music evolve since those days. (Eric Sandy)
