Title track ’Paws’; a low slung balearic journey with carefree melodies, hazy vocals and shimmering synth lines that create an audio mirage of dancing lights on the horizon.
‘Waterfoot’ follows suit, diving headfirst into deep waters, drowning us gently in the slow mo aqua dub before surfacing into an ocean storm of rhythms and percussive
Choral vocals and shuffling percussion are the order of the day on ‘Pupsqueak’, a bouncy bubble of sundripping harmonies with a nagging bassline and kaleidoscopic lead lines to dazzle the ears.
Enjoyed reminds us where our journey began with ‘Swap’; a modern midnight
interpretation of ‘Paws’, which conjures up a deep narcotic house vibe with soporific vocal washes that recall Toro Y Moi or Nite Jewel at their finest.
NazcarNation venture into even sunnier territory with the help of numerous warped marimba patterns, broken beats and extra joyous vocal lines, which eventually erupt into a late evening beach party of talkative synths and playful bass lines
Meanwhile, Brixton based duo, Glyphs, strip back the original into an adult lullaby, complete with dreamy arpeggios and a cradle rocking low end that will cause
even the smallest hairs on your body to sway and vibrate.
Oxfordian instrumental Hip Hop guru, Vanilla, steps things up with his dusky sundown version, full to the brim with classic Dilla beats, writhing synths and
enough funk to last several lifetimes. Bass is boss here and it paves the way for the super thick melodies and ghostly vocal stabs before leaving you stranded by the
side of some unknown street.
At which point you find yourself in a Ghosting Season induced dream state. Or is it a nightmare? Recognisable vocal textures are transformed into haunting figures whilst an inquisitive percussion pattern holds your hand as you soar through
unnerving soundscapes and hazy memories
