sleepless voyage: l.a. series special
It’s Earthly Matters first installment on Subcity Radio, so I thought I would treat youse all with a show that best sums up the universe that I immerse myself in, with a focus on perhaps one of most innovative and idea driven series of records to be released, throughout 2010 so far. All City's The L.A. Series.
With the first record having been released back in January of 2010 and only 6 records released so far it is a testament to the strength of the series so far that I will be focusing on it this early, as I am that excited by it!!!
The premise of All City's the L.A. Series is a collection of 10, 10”s, featuring two producers on each record, it focuses on some of the most exemplary contemporary beatmakers to come out of Los Angeles from various labels such as Brainfeeder and Alpha Pup, including Ras_G & The Afrikan Space Programme, Daedelus, Jordan Rockswell, P.U.D.G.E. and Carlos y Gaby.
Constantly pushing boundaries, and never succumbing to the trivialities of genres, rules, or established perceptions and conventions, the collection of producers featured on these unique releases are always consistently submerging themselves into deeper waters, always taking a step away from their comfort zones into thought provoking channels of connectivity.
Interchanging harmonious melodies, washed out wistful emotions, deep, murky, space laden souped-up synths, echo driven eccentric samples and abstract beats. Its a conduit of fluidic sounds so expect no perimeters, instead expect things to ALWAYS go off on a tangent and straying toward realms we’re yet to discover.
MATTRESSES + SLEEP = DREAMS + JOURNEYS = TO ANYWHERE IN THE COSMOS.
