Florida-based musician Kyle Piety AKA Bit Deff creates gorgeous, textured beat-driven downtempo electronica. Not exactly ambient what with the plethora of rhythms and drum tracks, but more relaxing than a night on the town that’s for sure. His brand of music is positively Balearic, and any of these tracks would work in a Cafe Del Mar compilation — which isn’t a dis. Because I happen to love that brand of chillout music.
A live DJ set from 2011 mixing techno, dub, and IDM tunes that can warm up even the coldest room in the planet. And it stands the test of time.
This is not just a collection of music, it’s a poignant valedictory speech to the band’s peers. It’s a hymn to the raucous joys of wasted youth.
As you allow this music to wash over you, it conjures images of sunrises and cold winter winds, of solitude in the intensely beautiful wildernesses of the mind.
Twin Caverns’ vocalist Louise Millar lends the Kanye West song a jazzy, 1930s vibe even as the groove languidly wraps its laidback beats around your prefrontal lobes. A gem.
