One of the men leading the charge in Boston’s electronic music community is Andre Obin. The local producer and performer has been lauded by everyone from Pitchfork to Vice, crafting tracks ranging from engaging synth dance jams to more ambient and spacious psychedelic waves. Obin’s last album “The Arsonist” was such a success that his label, Sky Council Recordings, requested that he release an EP of remixes with the help of artists like Steve Bug, K-X-P, and Black Asteroid. The EP, “The Arsonist Remixes,” will be out Nov. 12.
