Pete Sasqwax & Madslo – ADSR

Pete Sasqwax and Madslo have joined forces to create a new cassette release, “ADSR”.

In both cases, the joint tape is some of the producers best work to date. Truly eerie, atmospheric, head nodding and entertaining.

Until it finally arrives back to the original artists to give it the final rework. Once again the album features a remix from our very own LongDistanceDan, amongst many talented others.

“The Steps” is the first in a series of releases for Here & Now Records and features singer Simi Stone. The track is a ethereal, cinematic soundscape that floats lightly over you, seeping into your mind and soul. “The Steps was inspired by a fantasy. The mysterious feeling of walking on ancient steps – ascending towards the sky. Simi’s voice represents the yearning from the cold blue sky as you get higher.”
Definitely the perfect track for those mellow moments and we look forward to hearing what else Baron has in store. Out now on Here & Now Records.
