After a six year hiatus Twardowski returns with his fourth album on U Know Me Records. The newest outing is a retrofuturistic trip to the author’s two biggest influences: instrumental hip-hop and… video games. The new album eschews Twardowski’s previous synth-heavy style in favor of multiple layers of chopped and mended together samples, topped off by cuts from U Know Me’s own jazz guitarist/turntablist Żyńy. The album invokes video games with the track titles, the LP’s title being a homage to coin-ops and via the overall sound: wonky, heavily shuffled, almost-out-of-sync rhythms sounding almost as if the tracks were done sampler in one hand gamepad in the other, over a lengthy, laid back gaming/sequencing session. Maybe if a gamepad was a sampler and instrumental hip-hop was a game, “One Coin Clear” could have been its soundtrack.
