Sleepparalysis Dreamchamber crafts moody ethereal soundscapes with percussive back beats. Soundtracks to those future post apocalyptic cityscapes you hav’nt dreamed about yet…but in a good way.
dv0id is still very much about his 404 production and off kilter boom baps. With BB_treats2 ( a tenetive follow up to his 2018 long form mix bb_treats) he returns with his signature jazz samples all chopped up and obscured and lets them hang out just long enough for the loop to become an earworm and then its on the next one.

“Trees Speak’s new album ‘Shadow Forms’ is a blend of 1970s German electronic and ‘motorik’ Krautrock instrumentals (think Harmonia, Can, Cluster, Popul Vuh, Neu!), haunting and powerful 1960s & 1970s soundtracks (think Italian prog-rock Goblin and John Carpenter horror movies, Morricone and existential John Barry spy movies), together with a New Nork no wave electronic synth and guitar analogue DIY-ness (think Suicide, anything on Soul Jazz’s New York Noise series or Eno’s New York No Wave)!” – via Soul Jazz Records

Ladies and gentlemen I present to you, your melancholy song of the summer. Lando and his camp have been sitting on this one for a while, and to say we’ve been waiting to share it with the rest of you with eager anticipation is an understatement. The track was conceived when producer Tom Johnson (aka Triceratops of the rap duo Headlock) gave Lando a beat. A dreamy, blown out piano and hi hat hook, paired with Lando’s sing-songy style, create an anthem that speaks of loss and regret in our short attention span age of inter web speak. Directed by Malcolm Critcher & shot by Symeon Platts of Mild West.
