TJD001 is Jitwam’s debut of original slow-motion funk, dusty soul, and cassette-spun R&B from Australia by way of Manipur. Mastered by LR’s Matthewdavid, available now via iTunes & ltd. edition 12″ vinyl.
“Momentos” from the mysterious man known as AGES is one of the freshest-to-def cassette editions to ever graze the magnetic strip. The compositions are very forward, even traditional, but have a strong retro & haunted air to them. Usage of vintage analog recording equipment gives this tape a fried-out Joe Meek-style production, sounding like he is playing with a band of 1950s mariachi spooks.
A soundtrack to waiting in a Spanish hotel lobby watching a 50s talk show, drinking a mojito, waiting for the man with the suitcase to arrive…
DTCPU returns with “Lundys”,
A deep trip through lush, ambient heart-zones and middle eastern syrup-tripper beats flowing to the brim with the soundscapes and psych-collage vignettes we know and love. The infamous sonic pornographer blesses us with some of his best teasers yet on this homegrown homage to the new Glue Moon fam, Ages (birthname Mike Lundy). “Lundys” is as liquid as sippin’ a smoothie, or as endearing as a drooly dog with his tongue out the window, this tape unfolds like a ride down from trimming season in a grateful dead bus. True journey music from a true journeyman.

“World Music introduces a series of themes which represent various styles and likenesses I’ve adopted in my growth as a sound artist living in the digital age. In respect to my environment, I wanted to create a body of sound-work that is transient in nature. Each track was arranged as separate entities and are holistic in the sense that they are intended to inspire an experience of indifference within a space of perpetual sonic motion. “World Music” describes the continuous sensory shift of both meditative neglect and cognitive sophistication when active within a (digitally) connected culture.” -Ahnnu
