The Nassau Sessions were recorded in Nassau Bahamas in March of 2013 using zero analog equipment. This debut 7″ features four sedated, rum-fueled dubs by Double Pelican Man.
The sounds chosen are familiar to the Dub Reggae lexicon. Deep sub bass, guitar chords, synth bleeps and clacking percussion. All drenched in echo and reverb, each ingredient added with careful consideration to the mix. The rhythms tumble and sway confidently. Grooves are proudly extended, while the occasional overdub effect gives each track a paradoxically haunting undertone.
After inhaling these tracks, your perception of time may be altered. Seconds slowing to minutes, minutes drifting towards the open sea and out into the abyss. Suitable for a euphoric afternoon smoke or a back room deal. The Nassau Sessions will be one of the most distinguished dub EP’s you will hear this year.
From Quavius – s/t EP
A home grown talent from Jacksonville, Florida, Quavius is a master selector able to flip genres with ease and style. First and foremost though he is a producer determined to get the sound of the South East out into the world.
The reunion of two of our favourite musicians was sure to strike a chord with us and it didn’t fail to impress. As Studio OST, White Material affiliates Galcher Lustwerk and Alvin Aronson have managed to combine each of their singular scopes in one, summoning faded memories and porcelain-fragile ambiences shining with a ghostly glow.
From the Eventide / Ascension EP
They didn’t turn in a tracklist for the set that they called a “soundtrack mix,” but the hour-and-45-minute excursion soars through the clouds of ambient music’s most gossamer realms—making room for one of Underworld’s most spectral songs as well. It’s blissful, buoyant, and peaceful introduction to what the Studio OST project’s all about if you’re only familiar with the pair’s solo efforts.
