————————————–

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.

Produced by: Matthewdavid
Art by: Felix Jackson Jr.
Released for free via: Brainfeeder

Finally Matthewdavid releasing those slow jams…..Some have been more lucky than others and heard some of those last week, and now for the World: it’s time to listen to those gems_and figure out what you miss everytime Leaving Records are doing a gig in town. For now, just play this over and over again_its Loud & Trippy_And its Good

“Its refreshing to push a sort of soulful, or sexually-expressive [vocal] side of my music through a “beat-scene” outlet that some of my audience is familiar with. Rarely you get a voice behind the beats w/the current producer climate of the laptop & midi controller. My voice is one of love, and I got a lot of love.” -MD

BUY # DAK – Youstandit / Leftrecord [Leaving Records_LR020]

25 07 2012

Today is a good day_all days are good (or should be) but this one is a bit better than others…First, i just posted about Analogue Monsta “album” that popup 2day, and so, as i’m a music nerd (not like NeedleDrop guy, read: i dont pretend to be the busiest music nerd) i go check Leaving Records as (almost) everyday_and i was expecting to see Ras G’s El Aylien part II, but…this is still an amazing surprise cause its Monsieur DAK aka DAKIM aka DDust aka 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 *…. is one of my favourite artist. All Time. I invite you to listen (and DL if u feel so) this very nice collab with Asonic Garcia, one of the rare artist to compose with D

Dakim is a very difficult artist to approach, his universe is always & constantly melting, like a star who wasnt born yet, you can’t really tell what direction the energy will take and if it’s gonna be hot or cold or steal or water. His two DIY-CDRs shows it well, without talking about his “first” release for LR (listen/grab here), but listening to DAK is like jumping in a Lamborghini with a Parkinson drunk driver: Fuckin Exciting. I guess, and its a bit unfortunate (maybe not in fact?) that Dakim is way too much underrated and to me is an artist to range alongside many others: from Dimlite to John Cage, Sun Ra to Aphex. It’s 2012, and everything is going way too fast. Music is the medium you can use to escape all this bullsh*t, reprogram your thoughts to another destination. One thing is sure, when listening to Dak, you’re somewhere like nothing before_and it’s hard to leave his planet…. Space Base is The Place

– BUY IT HERE AT LEAVING RECORDS // iTunes –

Three years after ‘standthis‘ (LR001), the elusive and visionary dak returns with a formidable double dose of electronic abstractions and psychedelic hip-hop. The visual accompaniments set the scene: ‘youstandit’ hovers above a chaotic jumble of wires and machinery, all post-idm paranoia and claustrophobic detroit futurism, while ‘leftrecord’ shows a lush green overgrowth, encompassing the gritty, unconventional and untamed rhythms and textures of the natural world. ‘youstandit / leftrecord’ finds dak walking the blurry line between these two starkly different, yet disconcertingly similar environments– untangling, hacking, and digging his way through many dense layers in pursuit of a beautiful and harmonious peace underneath.

You Can Listen some DAK experimentations over le Myspace (yep still exist Son) & grab his past records over POOBAH or ALPHA PUP // To be mentioned a very limited 7″ from (iN)Sect camp, discogs it HERE
