Naps

Hydrate

(This Thing)

Release date: Mar 11, 2014

“Hydrate” is the debut long-player from Melbourne’s naps. A world where a lo-fidelity aesthetic meets precise digital manipulation, Hydrate flexes between New Age collage and decaying hip hop, encouraging the listener to keep up in their Nike Free Flyknits. Shaped and re-shaped over the course of a year, “Hydrate” combines hi-tech composition, subtle arrangements and off-balance rhythm, showcasing the young producer's critical awareness and reductive approach. In his most rounded work to date, naps balances a unique sonic footprint, resulting in an understated and blissful first LP.
