god damn what in the hell is this awesome ass shit
NYC is a track
didn’t this guy rise from the 1080p label? i miss the output from them…
these 2 tracks are goood
yeeeaahhhiight…feels like something mnesia scannr 4 the haus set
lets talk about it tho…what hooks u guys?
vocal snips in NYC have a kinda earwormy effect sitting atop of the lo-fi stuff going on, it’s a little simple but i think it works well, reminds me the of sound and vibe of what’s on the 1080p label.
not as big on the vocal snippets in the second track but i like the groove, has a lil’ bounce
much in the same way that Boards of Canada used the artifacts of late 70s and early 80s culture to explore and present their wonderfully haunted vision of a future that never quite arrived (or a past that never existed to begin with), so too have some of these newer artists like George Clanton and Walkthru (and maybe Ferraro a decade ago) succeeded in achieving a similar effect, instead with the discarded detritus of 90s culture. the product itself obviously sounds nothing like anything that would have ever come out of that era but the nostalgia it produces for it is still quite potent. sometimes it’s very hard for me to detach the music from the visual component of the packaging, especially when its been done very well (see above references) and therefore it’s difficult to actually locate the root of the nostalgia it stirs inside you. which i guess is precisely the point.
It took this long for Numbers to finally release an album huh…
