Blood On His Lips
by Scientist
(11 plays) | (0 fans)

Hopeton Brown better known as The Scientist and sometimes known as Overton Brown, from Kingston, Jamaica was a protégé of King Tubby (Osbourne Ruddock), and one of the originators of dub music. This " record's expert evocation of the Halloween spirit also includes some fiendishly-voiced intros, the cover art's cartoon potpourri of horror film characters, and the dubious claim made in the liner notes that Scientist mixed it all at midnight on Friday the 13th.": https://www.forcedexposure.com/Catalog/scientist-rids-the-world-of-the-evil-curse-of-the-vampires-lp/MIR.100739LP.html

Anthony Gonzalez said "DSVII"( short for "Digital Shades, Vol. II"), M83's eighth studio album, was inspired by playing 1980s video games while in Cap d'Antibes in France in 2017, calling the "old-school games" "naive and touching" as well as "simple and imperfect."

Cry Wolf
by Skylar Spence
(2 plays) | (0 fans)

"I felt alone and detached from things that used to make me feel joy, but kind of just allowed myself to wallow in that anxiety and depression instead of reaching out for help," Skylar Spence said of this song. "It took me nearly a year to reach the point where I had to start making changes in my life, and this chorus was meant to be kind of a mantra for people who've found themselves in my space, where you've talked so often about making changes it starts to feel like crying wolf. You can get through it (and appreciate the insight you gained for having gone through it!)”

This dance track was inspired by Matthew Dear's Detroit hometown. Dear wrote “New Breed” using sampled sounds from Ford’s upcoming luxury electric racing-style sedan. As Ford explained in a press release, their electric vehicles don’t produce much noise, so the company worked with Michigan’s own Ozone Sound studio to craft sounds out of the “electronic oscillations that emanate in and outside” of the car.: https://consequenceofsound.net/2020/08/stream-matthew-dear-new-breed-mustang/
