Dreaming of better days with: Vonpsyche – Valley Days #Downtempo #Electronic

As we wait for the results of the US election, lockdown to end, or the end of the world to arrive let’s have some soothing electronic escapist Autumn sensations from Vonpsyche.

Vonpsyche says his, “musical path began almost 13 years ago amid the West Siberian Plain as a hip-hop producer and obscure underground rapper.” There’s only a hint of that past left in this lovely chilled track. And that’s in the way that the beats have a slow head nodding quality.

Valley Days is half of a two track release with Rendezvous. It was originally called Valley Death and there is a bit of that isolation and even despair. But mostly it’s a dreamy hazy wander. Beats are stately and deliberate with a touch of dub. The breathing element adds to that sense of weariness at it all. As Vonpscyhe says this, “is a repetitive piece based on a hypnotic piano loop that unfolds into a shock-filled beat at the center of an almost disorienting delay canvas.”

A lovely track that isn’t disorientating of itself but comes over as disorientated and numb. Beautifully done hazy repetition.
