[rec72] Kurobear - Dreameresque view on Europa
Introlude Babush-ka Grab What Works Powerful Indeed G stime (86 mix)
Celebrate the 3rd full length album from Kurobear with his brand new album called “Europa”. Kurobear – formally konwn as Kid Caustic – has put together nine electro melodic and catchy tunes on “Europa” reflecting his physical and mental constitution when he was seriously ill in 2009. We don’t go into further details now, but be sure to listen to Kurobear’s musical answers on dreamy trips of “Europa”. So he presents a nifty album trying to recreate the feeling of “sleep and just being in a whole different state of consciousness”, as Kurobear describes his age of insomnia at the beginning of the year.
Kurobear says: “The album title came to me when I was really sick in a dream, in about march I got really and was sleeping about 23 hours a day, only to wake up and see if I could move at all but whenever I did try to move or be active, it made it worse.” When he was writing “Europa” afterwards he took a lot of ideas from groups like The Orb and psychedelic music from the 60’s as well as jam band stuff, taking all those different influences and putting them together; and trying to make them work while still being able to pick out the different sounds, so it doesn’t sound like a mash of different things.
