Zipperlegs is Ryan York’s third release following his eponymous debut album on the Non Projects label under the moniker of Asura. Where Asura found York investigating the boundary line between the city of angels’ beat jungle and the artist’s own ties to modern classical and jazz, Zipperlegs represents a shift toward a deeper form of beat-one.

The title Zipperlegs is a word representing the state of trance that creative traditions can elicit inspired by Haitian rara, West African polyrhythmic musics, E.E. Cummings’ linguistic flips, Bulgarian and Georgian choral traditions, Tibetan chants, Kwakwaka’wakw dance, the poems of Rumi, and, of course, the spectre of contemporary electronic production. Influenced by its parallel conception with the Haitian earthquake of early 2010, Zipperlegs explores death, inequality, and the oddness of embodiment in a human form.
