Last month, CMJ caught up with Proximal co-founder Sahy Uhns to discuss his second album, Courtship Dances (OUT NOW). Check out what CMJ had to say about the album and read through the Q&A while you stream Courtship Dances, here.
CMJ on Courtship Dances:
Every moment is significant on Courtship Dances; every pitch-shift or untethered beat stutter or low-end bass drag marks a change in the album’s dynamic.
Sahy Uhns on the narrative of the new album:
I often will write tracks to score memories or in parallel to a story I am creating in my head as I write.

Courtship Dances is available now on:
OUT NOW! The first free release in Wake and Sahy Uhns’ new mixtape series, Swap Meet. What is Swap Meet? Glad you asked.
What do you do to avoid being bored in the waiting room at the doctor’s office, as a passenger on a long car trip, on Saturday morning while you’re waiting for your boyfriend/girlfriend to get out of bed, on the bus, on your lunch break, and while you’re using the bathroom? Sahy Uhns and Wake make beats. These are some of those beats.
