Sideman Deejay 12 studies of pedregal sparsity, punctured by glassy frissons with imagined phyla. Favorite track: The Gecko That Wore Its Skin Inside Out.

Camryn Marquez Island of the gods seems to capture something magical when it invites musicians to its haven. This collection, like Black Merlin’s, transmogrifies the natural and endemic into meditative electronic compositions that straddle the lines between dub, new age, and ambient in such a unique way. I’m not sure I would necessarily describe this as a direct documentation of the culture, but the music manifests in such a way that it is inextricably linked to the cultural isms that provided the sound sources.

about

For the second addition of Island Of The Gods 'Island Explorer Series' we invited Jonny Nash (Melody is Truth) and Firecracker's Lindsay Todd to the Islands.

Over the course of twelve compositions we find the pair utilising their recordings in a whole host of ways, avoiding the well-trodden cliches of the “exotic” and instead attempting to achieve a personal interpretation of the flora, fauna and climate of the island. Spending time amidst the insects, rice fields and scorching sun, the pair gathered a library of found sounds which were then taken back to a studio space to be stretched, mangled and manipulated alongside a variety of electronic and acoustic instruments. The outdoor studio itself became a living instrument, with the duo setting up multiple microphones for durations of up to 12 hours around the space, layering and processing the results in tracks such as “Fauna Mapping” and “A Series Of Small Frogs”.
