First Listen :: Akasha System & Foans on 100% Silk
Two brand new cassettes from our favorite L.A. label, 100% Silk this week. The first one comes from Cascadia, Oregon based producer, Akasha System. Formerly known for his work under Opaline for the past couple years on several labels, the young producer has recently been self-releasing tracks under his new alias. Akasha System furthers his new journey through sound with an upcoming 6-track tape titled, Vague Response. Our first listen into 'Afterimage' from the release is a unique feel into the moodiness and hazy house alterations that sing throughout this calming and appeasing soundtrack Akasha System has fabricated.
Vague Response is out on cassette and digital August 5th via 100% Silk.

The second release this week on 100% Silk comes from Colorado based producer, Foans. Indebted to his nocturnal hardware formulations since about 2013, Mr. Dahabrah follows his exceptional album from last year on Danish label, Speaker Footage. The new album titled, Frontier, might just be some of Foans best work to date. Our first listen into 'Lakeside' off the cassette nicely pockets Foans' funky bassline and whirling chords that resonate throughout the 8-track cerebral boogie down that Foans has successfully wired and coalesced.
Frontier is out on cassette and digital August 5th via 100% Silk.
