RIP Sam Mehran

Another apparent suicide. Talented guy and very young too (only 3).  I'm only now seeing the connections he had between various projects I've enjoyed throughout the year.  He's probably best known for a group (Test Icicles) that I never particularly cared for, but then started produced a wealth of treasures during the chillwave/Altered Zones era (I had forgotten about that Katie Rush EP, which I really enjoyed but never wound up downloading).  And then had connection to the more hypnagogic-sounding Matrix Metals and Outer Limit Recordings, a kind of second-tier Haunted Graffiti.  A greatest hits mix would surely reveal as in the few samples above that he knew his way around a melody.
