Arad is the solo guise of Dara Smith. As half of the duo Lakker with Ian McDonell (Eomac), Smith has released on Blueprint, Stroboscopic Artefacts, and R&S Records. That project, along with his day job as a motion graphics designer, kept Smith fully occupied until now. Haon, Smith's debut release as Arad, fuses years of experience into a veritable feast of intriguing composition. Opening with aptly titled roller "Basswave," the EP ranges through the screwed-up sounds of "Fourty Four" to the staccato march of "Gedup Awa Dat" to warped closer "NCS" - a record for the headphones and the dancefloor.
