As Pictureplane, DJ Travis Egedy serves a most unusual purpose: He makes house music for punk and indie rock crowds. The Denver resident once characterized his work as "a kind of punk trance," but in reality, his ultra-synthy music is far better at taking you to some distant, exotic place. For evidence of what Egedy's ties to rock have yielded so far, consider his give-and-take relationship with Los Angeles noisemakers Health. In a remix of Health's "Die Slow," Egedy massaged the rough, industrialized track into something soft and sky-like; in return, the band added some sharp corners to his luminescent "Goth Star." It's in everyone's best interest that Egedy continue to strike up such fascinating friendships.
