“After accolades including a first physical release on Matthew David’s “Leaving Records” and having some of his upcoming work aired on the latest Dublab 24 hour non-stop fundraiser broadcast, the Belgian master of nostalgic loops and thick, foggy pads returns with a solid offering of 8 wistful atmocore excursions right on time for the winter season.
Melodies wow and flutter, spinning through the stereo field unexpectedly, giving the EP a very warm and likeable lofi quality. ” (Words by Senz)
DimRun, our Graphic design master made the sleeves for this release on a sunny autumn afternoon, and we shot that. Hand-Screenprinting and embossing for possibly the cover we’re the most proud of to date!
Tracks off the EP will be available on this Soundcloud set as they’re unveiled by our partners.
“Also known as Cupp Cave, Franz Baker offers his 2nd EP of hazily evocative electronica as Ssaliva. Located somewhere between BoC and Hype Williams, on ‘RZA’ he’s mastered the magic of wow and flutter with eight tracks severely under the influence of a wistful, woozy substance which could prove trickily potent when heard before midnight. From the Bellows-like stereo-warp edits of ‘Black Soul’ through the Dean Blunted ‘Trimensional’ and ‘B Adventures’ or ‘Night Landing’, and the whirligig motion-sickness of ‘Hobo 4030’, this is a very, very good look for those who like their vibes soaked in codeine and smoked to the gills.” (Boomkat)
