PPM79. Cassette / Digital. Edition of 100. 6 songs
As the lights of the city flicker on through a fading orange haze, the distinct sound of DREAM_MEGA’s debut EP “minus_world” echoes through a maze of damp alleyways. The project of Los Angeles-based artist/musician Joel Kyack, its sound merges analog synthesizers with wind-based instruments like the Thai khlui, harmonica and voice, all filtered through a sweat-soaked fever dream of real-time improvisation, manipulation and looping.
As a founding member and multi-instrumentalist with the Providence, RI band Landed, Kyack helped craft a particular style of heavy, groove-based chaos that is oft-referenced in “minus_world”, translated here into a dark, stoned-out vision for a dystopian future. He is also a member of DOS MEGA and a past member of Six Finger Satellite, Megafuckers and Street Buddy.
