LongDistanceDan – The Dust Man Stirs

Yes, finally LongDistanceDan’s debut full length album, “The Dust Man Stirs” is available for download.
Carrying on from where his 2015, “The Other Side Of The Sky” left off, the album is a heavy mix of lo-fi, raw beats. Taking influence from raw funk, lo-fi hip hop, psychedelia, garage rock, library music and more, here is what people have been saying already –

“There seems to be some kind of crazy interference on my headset….nope…you’ve tuned into the psychedelic sound of Long Distance Dan. The Dust Man Stirs a pot filled to the brim with eclectic beats and sound textures. Moving between the electronic and the analogue, between downtempo trip-hop and speed psyche-beat. Strange variations found here for your third ear…” Ollie Teeba (The Herbaliser)
“Sounds great!” Boca 45
“Dan’s beats are imaginative and intriguing, you never know what is going to come next!” Jonny Cuba (Soundsci)
“This shits dope man! It’s gotta cool sequence to it, well mixed and knockin. Good drums” Walter Gross 
“Sounds good man, I like those drums!!! Keep the nastiness alive” Psychopop (Skrapez/Gonjasufi)
“It’s freaky cinematic, deep psych bangers. There’s some track I absolutely love, massive breaks, dirty bass lines and a weirdness to it all that’s really cool.” Tom Caruana (Son Of Sam/Tea Sea Records) 
“It’s a dope piece of art” Jason Furlow (New Kingdom) 

The album is fully instrumental apart from two tracks, “Rescue You” which features Icelandic forward thinking hip hoppers Cryptochrome and “After Omega”. A hard edged, garage rock howler featuring Sam Crick, formally of Brighton ska, punk, garage band Wilf. The awesome album artwork is provided by Sun Moth.
The album is out now for Name Your Price download via the Dusted Industries bandcamp page.

Just a lot faster (in the main) and after ingesting a lot more ‘purple haze.” Monkeyboxing.com
