OVERTURE. Here we have a crude idealization. This is the first step in an ongoing, imperfect testament to beauty.
ARIA. Tucked away in the acquiescent perfection of the Vermont mountains, Sasquatch, our humble producer, has steadily toiled away on Hip Hop beats in his bedroom for years. While reveling in the more ridiculous side of the genre at gigs, our hero has sought balance by producing melodically sublime, contemplative songs. It is there, at the cross section of downtempo and melodic house, that we find him now, split in an echoing duality of night & day.
CHORUS. And it is here, now, that we find the indistinct story emboldened and underlined, thanks to the applied perspective of Distal’s replicant Funk, AbJo’s free-spirited Boom Bap, Colta’s emotional Club, Tanner Caldwell’s unhurried Broken House, Boxwork’s minimal Garage and Heartbeat(s) rolling Acid.
CODA. Relegated strictly to vinyl for the moment, AbJo and Colta’s contributions shall accompany a yet unreleased decelerating Downtempo interpretation by Chloe Martini in a digital follow up release in 2015.
Early support from Tensnake, Maribou State, Andrea, Monki, Jamie George, Mamiko Motto, Pixelord, Nightwave, Om Unit, Druid Cloak & Troy Gunner.
