Dakim – DDUST REGOS
Total Runtime: 31min
ltd. to 250 tapes
This is a man i try to collect everything i can, not because im in a fan boy mood or anything like this.
I’m collecting any DAKIM works cause it’s one of those rare artists you can discover new things in a track u already listened 15 times, an artist you can “study” or dive into again & again & again for hours, an artist than completely avoided that crazy non-sense hype about beat scene (particulary LA one) which is still to me something to define…We’ll wait for Laurent Fintoni book for this, pretty impatient about his writing & what he collected.
For now, let’s go back to Dakim and this amazing tape for Leaving Records (what else?) called DDUST REGOS
If you’ve been following him the word DDUST might remind you a bunch of CDR DIY sent almost 3 years ago, if you were digging and werent broke u might have copped it. This new cassette aint nothing but a dak thang, get your ear on this excerpt first, then we’ll talk. Less.
The universal consciousness lives through infinitely variable and constant vibrations, which, while having individual characteristics, are all sympathetic to each other and together form one consistent motion.
The motion only knows to continue and its shape remains fixed, simply being an amalgam of everything, which is always moving but always.
The faster the vibrations, the more they become entwined with and directly influenced by other vibrations, blurring the contrast between them until they become indistinguishable as separate individuals.
Dakim’s music is so rich, it doesnt need so much to blast your brain out of your head, if it didnt leak from your ears first. Its not an easy music, and its very healing music at the same time. But hey, if you are reading this, its either u love Dakim or either u love the blog so dont need to warm you up.
To me, Dakim is an absolute king alongside people like Madlib or Muslimgauze. There’s no such thing as Dakim music, no material sound the same, no one can duplicate his stuffs. Falling into Dakim is more than a listening session around the woodfire. No. Falling into Dakim will make you go completely loco, cause everytime u’ll see a cassette or CDR of him roaming around, you’ll just tell yourself: Wait a minute, i need to listen to this again, im sure i didnt listened properly. Every. Time. Will. Do.
Grab this tape while you can. Its more than an advice, it’s an order.
