    Product Details

    Summary

    It's been a startling couple of years for instrumental beats of all persuasions: the likes of LA's Brainfeeder crew and Glasgow's LuckyMe collective have developed styles with a scope far beyond creating merely ‘instrumental Hip Hop'. Amongst all the hype and promotion, one of the music's reclusive architects seems to have been mysteriously overlooked.

    But Dimlite's production was astounding from the start. His EPs of 2003 and debut album Runbox Weathers two years later revealed a Swiss producer beholden to no one, possessing a style as nuanced as his friend Prefuse 73 and yet enriched by a careworn romanticism and quirkiness that rewarded repeat listens and has, over time, made him something of a ‘producer's producer'.

    Another album, singles, remixes and side-projects followed, taking Dimlite's sound further left, further into a singular world where soul music, latin rhythms, Hip Hop and more are reconstituted into dreamy, lovelorn beat constructions. And so he takes his place on Now-Again, home to a cadre of similarly singular spirits such as The Heliocentrics and The Whitefield Brothers, each bent on refracting music history through their own unique lenses.

    And while copycat producers abound, Dimlite's uniqueness is only throw into sharper relief. It's clear the moment he sings, such as on EP highlight Elbow Flood or the astonishing (and miniature) closer, Can't Get Used To Those. It's apparent in every one of his strangely abrupt changes. It's even in his song titles. Perhaps Prismic Tops will be the record that sparks a critical reappraisal of this gifted producer's work. And if not, ¬Now-Again Records is still proud to present this, the latest in a line of remarkable releases from a quiet pioneer.

    Comment: I love Dimlite's work... the emotion he puts into his work is amazing. I was only listening to Runbox Weathers on the train the other day and Back to The Universe still sounds fresh as... but this EP is awesome as too, featuring more avant garde songs, stunning production, it may only be 8 tracks long but it is something to quite simply immerse yourself in. Pure contemplation business. :-)
