What does a daydream sound like? Is it an audible
confidence boost, a concentrated dose of caffeine shot
straight into the bloodstream of dancing feet, a blue so
overwhelmingly electric its field stretches as far as the eye
can see? On Amadeus, the latest Ghostly effort from New
York's Lord RAJA, the shapeshifting producer answers his
own question with a cunning, childlike purity not felt since
he started tinkering with Fruity Loops aged six.
Though his means of music-making have matured since
then-on Amadeus he utilizes an arsenal of drum machines
along with synthesizers and an Allen & Heath analog mixer
slammed through for extra crunch-RAJA describes a
deliberate return to youthful experimentation and
immediacy, clearing the way for a "vista to his childhood."
Now being released on vinyl for the first time in collaboration
with Detroit's YHS Records, the original eight track EP has
been expanded to include three new songs.
