James Murphy “Match 176” Preview

James Murphy Made With Tennis Data

When we heard James Murphy was spending time making music from data collected at U.S. Open tennis matches we were a little skeptical to say the least. Today he has released the first taste in a series of remixes set to appear on the album called Made With Tennis Data which is set for release on December 19th via IBM’s Soundcloud.

“Match 176” is a slow building track (or so we gather from the preview which is just over a minute) that makes us yearn for the days of LCD Soundsystem. We’ll take what we can get though.

Hear the first snippet of “Match 176” below and watch a video which explains how the songs are made.
