Following up last year's acclaimed EP, Awake, on Gramatik's Lowtemp label, Dreamers Delight returns with another 4-pack of tunes that will...pardon this clunker, delight his supportive fans, and undoubtedly win him some new ones in the future bass community. Lucid Anatomy is the otherworldly evolution of Reed Krafft's sound.
The title track opener is a powerful symphonic punch that launches us into outer space a la Hans Zimmer's Interstellar score. It's a huge, pulsing beast that sucks us right into Dreamers Delight's world. Continuing on the space theme, “Star Dwellers” with fellow LA producer Vaughn Trace feels like the reboot to Firefly. There are cosmic elements, to be sure, but with a western tinge. Or perhaps, fringe?
“Tell Me” will be rattling around your head all day, with its addictive, glitched-out hook immediately locking its teeth into your eardrum and refusing to let go. The stuttering beat gives this whole track a very bouncy feel. Closer “Brooklyn” is future bass magic, which a slow, sweet build that culminates in a charming climax before easing listeners out of the EP.
Speaking of New York, after spending last weekend in southern California with Manic Focus and Thriftworks, Dreamers Delight heads to the Big Apple to hit Playstation Theater in Times Square with Lettuce and The Floozies tomorrow (November 12). Then it's back to Denver at the end of the month to rock Cervantes with Bass Physics the day after Thanksgiving (November 25). We know we're thankful for a brand new grip of tunes from Dreamers Delight.
