Dance music is accessible to anyone—I don’t care if you’re a gangster or a nerd. If you hear a certain groove, it’s going to move you. That’s why I really like to make dance music nowadays. I don’t care if it’s disco or electro or whatever. A good groove is going to move you regardless.
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.
