DREAM MACHINE

Borderless hi-tech soul music with loose rhythms, supported by Amsterdam jazz man Han Litz!

Kennedy returns to another musical dream state bringing nocturnal visions to life through the power of machines. On this third 12" in the series he widens his sonic scope via elements of jazz and African rhythms next to his own distinctive take on the original sounds of Detroit.

It's another musical offering that comes from deep within mind, body and soul. Side A sounds like a warm fusion of loose rhythms and glowing synths determined by machines, whereas the B-side is more explicitly human-made with flute recorded live by Amsterdam jazz man Han Litz, bringing a lightness of touch that imbues the music with hope and optimism. Beneath that, a battery of drums is set free calling up acoustic sounds driving from deep inside in a dense forest.


STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Hi-tech, full spectrum psychedelic house here aimed squarely at the cosmos. Spiritual elements combine as Kennedy sets out his synths as one to watch.

Heliosphere Ft. Han Litz

Barberos are from Liverpool and make the sort of driven, angular psychedelic noises that Battles and And So I Watch You From Afar excel at. It is a riotous, jagged beast, slathering with reams of grooving distorted bass, punchy percussives and sliding synth squeals, enriched with otherworldly echoes. It is forceful, surprising and as heavy as you get without killing the groove. Barberos are a talented bunch, and know how to make a stone-cold groove. Killer melodies, thundering percussion and an absolute riot. 

STAFF COMMENTS

Barry says: Barberos kill it with this collection of off-kilter jams, otherworldly cosmic squeals and soul-shaking groove. Killer math-rock. Essential.
