-youstandit / leftrecord

CS, total runtime 58.9 min
limited to 200 copies


Three years after ‘standthis‘ (LR001), the elusive and visionary dak returns with a formidable double dose of electronic abstractions and psychedelic hip-hop. The visual accompaniments set the scene: ‘youstandit’ hovers above a chaotic jumble of wires and machinery, all post-idm paranoia and claustrophobic detroit futurism, while ‘leftrecord’ shows a lush green overgrowth, encompassing the gritty, unconventional and untamed rhythms and textures of the natural world. ‘youstandit / leftrecord’ finds dak walking the blurry line between these two starkly different, yet disconcertingly similar environments– untangling, hacking, and digging his way through many dense layers in pursuit of a beautiful and harmonious peace underneath.
