about

Winding, far off instruments flutter over subtle layers of tape hiss and slow synth drones in Xann's new Ep. Tracks of pure ambient dreamscapes and synth experiments merge with muted sample snippets and considered noise bursts.

Side A is introduced with-"Rose Quartz Cosmo" , on which Xann incorporates a psychedelic twangy guitar solo improvisation on top of atmospheric pads layered with environment recordings from few busy cafes in London. Xann explains, "I wanted to project that feeling of teleportation into dreamy worlds, that every DJ needs that’s after a night of playing straight techno workouts". Rose Quartz Cosmo is sequeled with sweeping winds on A2- - "Tears in Tangerine" which intensifies and raises the tonal energy of the EP. A combination of stretched unsettling female vocals over an abstract drum loop enhances the spacey feel of side A. Tears in Tangerine is imagined by the artist as "a goodbye moment between lovers from different planets separating at Dione" as reflected by the tearful female vocal sample.

Side B embarks with "Peach Echo Angels", a combination of blissful strings, filtered synth bass and reverberant nature recordings, over a subtle layer of tape noise, creating a relaxing atmosphere. Antiques of Dione closes with a slow building heartbeat metronome layered with birdcalls and sidechained white-noises entitled "Cayenne Diones".Cayenne Diones is strangely unsettling but relaxing as it progresses into a dreamy harp sequence.

Original artwork comes from Matt Carp.
