new production! Lake Lander's LP



Unique for me in terms of process, Lake's first album feels like so much fusion to me. The earlier mini-album is a hazy lo-fi world of ambient sampler dabbling built around a 36 min sound collage; this album explores microtonality, layered field recordings, repetitive beat dubbing, and glowing synth textures. It's an ambient album, my last full production in Avondale estates at Bedsitter Studios, and it was a beautiful way to say goodbye to my home of ten years.

Luxury Through Repetition beat tape



These past six months, I've been listening to a lot of beat tapes on YouTube, and tho I've cycled through several genres of tapes, I've never found one that really does anything quite like what I do. So after some experimenting and dubbing, I found myself with a raucous collection of things roughly approaching psychedelic motorik electro, which I then assembled into a full 34 min beat tape for YouTube. I may do LP mixes of these tracks at some point, but for now, here they are in one full tape.
