Pangaea, a.k.a. Kevin McAuley, announced his forthcoming album today on Hessle Audio, the label he co-founded with Pearson Sound and Ben UFO. This is Pangaea's first full-length, following a slew of EPs and mixes starting with 2007's Coiled 12". The record, titled In Drum Play, is Hessle's second full length release, following Pearson Sound's 2015 self-titled debut.

To celebrate the occasion, Pangaea shared an upcoming album cut, "More Is More To Burn". The single finds McAuley channeling catchy techno from the early 90s. Dark but light hearted, the track lives up to its tongue-in-cheek title.

In Drum Play is out on October 14 on Hessle Audio, you can preorder the album here. In the meantime, revisit the Hessle newcomer Ploy's excellent 12" from earlier this year.
