Wizard Of is Toronto-based producer Bob McCully, also of the on-hiatus Women in Tragedy, who turns out varied, experimental beat work that draws influence from hip-hop and UK electronic music.

Wizard Of’s latest is “Skeleton I” from Face/Skeleton, forthcoming in tape form from Digitalis Recordings. Merging bright synths, driving, high-bpm drums, a pitched-up vocal hook, a melancholy piano loop and an overall aesthetic that wouldn’t sound out of place on Hyberdub, this cut feels like it tracks a night out from its peak to its eventual close.  Emotional without hitting full-on Burial, and energetic without wearing out its welcome, this is the most fully-realized addition to Wizard Of’s growing discography of tape and downloadable releases.
