these are the darker sides of justin james a.k.a. drmlgcc: atmospheric and dense, yet spacious at the same time. three tracks, located somewhere between musical architecture and spontaneity, are the building blocks of “treading”. justin guides us through sounds as diverse as can be. they are at times repetitive and minimal, ambient and floating, experimental and playful. they are organic and synthetic, wild and fragile, and occasionally steeped in krautrock improvisation.
all of this forms the basis for drmlgcc’s sound stories – his slowly evolving, acoustic tales.
it took him quite some time to complete this release, let us spend all the time necessary to be taken away, to experience the three tracks thoroughly.
