“It is with great pleasure and eagerness that Recycled Plastics is able to introduce the listening world to Demi Odessa, a talented young man who has managed to create one of the best Summer albums we’ve ever heard. BODY MEMORY is notable not only because it is the first RP release to feature vocals, but because it embodies a beautiful confluence of youthful melancholy, seasonal playfulness, lo-fi charm and incredibly measured restraint. Elements of Demi Odessa can be traced all over the place, from warm tape-decked house music to minimal techno, from 1990’s trip hop records to classical synthpop – it’s all present, natural and unforced. Body Memory sounds easy, accessible and plays to both down and up moods at all the right points, still never letting the curtain pull back so much that we ever get a clear picture of the person behind it.
Keen listeners note: The limited edition CD-R comes with a disc-exclusive bonus track – a Milieu remix of “Don’t” that displaces Odessa’s lonesome vocals into a SAW 85-92 pool of bittersweetness for night-time cough syrup relaxation…”
“The shadowy figure known as Lamont Kohner returns to Recycled Plastics, after disappearing into a smoky alleyway one night in 2016. He carries with him the new single BROKEN, a classic Kohner cut full of high-pressure bass, monstrous kick drums and dub stabs soaked in greasy city rain. A swirling neon romp that brings to mind equal parts dark dancefloor and film noir detective stories. Backing BROKEN is the equally heavy TENSOR, a hypnotic subway train of metallic rhythms and bass pulse, which passes through the underbelly of the city BROKEN lays claim to, echoing creaks and disembodied voices through pipe systems and black tunnels.”
“My name is Ray. I’m from Long Island and, I make hip-hop beats under the name yungsenzubean. I want to share a project that I have recently released called Out There. It’s a 13 track hip-hop instrumental tape. I have been told that my music is chill / nostalgic and that it helps people to vibe out. My influences are The Neptunes / J Dilla / Madlib / Pete Rock / DJ Premier.”
