D33J – STILLS
New taste of the fresh Gravels EP from the AntiCon signing, this has Shlohmo elements and pieces of Mount Kimbie (with whom D33J is currently touring,) too which is a wonderful concoction, but also manages to find a sound of its own. The EP was written, according to Djavan Santos (for D33J is he,) “about self-reflection—trying to replicate the feeling of sitting alone after you get home late, still drunk and on drugs. You’re high and thinking about life and whether these stoned thoughts are even worth anything in the end?”
It’s perhaps this which gives the track it’s feeling of unease, light shades melding into darkness – hope and fear working together. It’s tremendous.
