Tropes / Lomaji

DT004: Tropes / Lomaji

(DIRTY TAPES)

Release date: Mar 23, 2013

Dirty Tapes presents another split tape, this time between two masters of ethereal soundscaping, TROPES and LOMAJI. Here the listener may relish DT's head-bobbing recipe: retrospective sample selection, cherubic vocal interjections, and beats transmuted in clouds of undulating fuzz. TROPES uses side 1 to cast a fugue-like spell, floating amorphous harmony atop subaqueous rhythms. LOMAJI takes the tape into more lucid territories on side 2, dispelling the sweet haze with warm rays of funky, 80s-infused grooves.
