In The Blue Shirt “Cyanotype” (Maltine Records)

In The Blue Shirt approaches music from a molecular level. Take “Cluster A,” the second song off the Osaka-based electronic producer’s recently released “Cyanotype” album. He pulls vocal samples from artsy New Zealander Lorde’s brooding “Royals” and makes them the core of his track. Yet he rejiggers them into a nonsensical whirlwind of syllables, made all the more sunny by chirpy backing music. It isn’t shy in reminding you just which global hit In The Blue Shirt plundered, yet he has engineered it into something that gives off a completely different atmosphere — so much so that the source doesn’t even matter.
