“Oud!n13 from France presents his second album Cosmic Light as sequel to his debut album “Lost in this world”.
This time the tracks have become smoother than on his previous album, but overall he remained true to himself. The music is a soulful transmission of deep and melancholic moods, cosmic vibrations and Detroit indluenced sounds. Download your personal portion of the cosmic light.”
“No doubt our society is complacent. Is Hollywood’s never ceasing fascination with the walking dead any wonder? Radius’ Sleeping Wide Awake is a call from a reflecting awareness – wake up. In his own words: ‘people are zombies sleepwalking and so much going on around them is here to awaken them, they just need a change of diet. Mentally, physically and spiritually I feel music is that cure’. In essence this is what hip hop has been about since the get (despite what clear-channel and mainstream ‘you are getting sleeeeeeepy’ thrust repeats would have the world believe). Knock Knock. Who’s there? Beats with swagger before ‘swag’ became yet another example of how late pop exploitation decides what’s cool. Radius’ tracks capture a certain meditative quality that is neither ambient or new-agey, a something-a-ruther often missed in music of technological mediums. Chopped and pitched samples, vinyl static, classic breaks, steps without quantization, piercing envelopes, – all played and recorded in real time. Raw. Simply put, Sleeping Wide Awake is a hip hop instrumental album from a true head for true heads and beyond. Enjoy.”
