This is the debut LP from the talented UK producer Sorrow. Being a “garage hybrid of his own creation” I won’t say much here as the details are very thorough on the release page for this one and they’re just below. I will admit though, there is certainly something very entrancing about the moods that the first few tracks here convey. Even if this isn’t your typical listen, I assure you, it will trigger something that catches you! Give it a listen down below.

â€˜Dreamstoneâ€™ is the debut long-player from the highly talented UK producer Sorrow.
Sorrowâ€™s electronic, beats-driven music floats above the furthest reaches of Ambient Dubstep, propelled aloft by a dubbed out, sonorous Garage hybrid of his own invention.
A series of self-released tracks and remixes and three EPs over the last two years, as well as collaborations with other artists (including Stumbleine, Asa and Submerse) have rapidly earned him a profile as one of the UKâ€™s rising producers.
True to his moniker, Sorrowâ€™s music has an underlying current of melancholy, with mournful strings and piano and ghostly vocals, but he balances the mood artfully with head-bobbing beats and a wonky sense of humour that emerges unexpectedly here and there.
In â€˜Dreamstoneâ€™, the lush strings and languid zig-zag beats of â€˜Embraceâ€™ flow into the Bossa Nova lounge of â€˜Maelysâ€™, which in turn yields to the darker, more experimental tones of â€˜Supernovaâ€™.
From the chilled out ambience of â€˜Dallianceâ€™, featuring the sultry guest vocals of CoMa, to the restless, more aggressive beats of â€˜Intruderâ€™, â€˜Dreamstoneâ€™ works equally well for late night sonic explorations or laid-back Sunday mornings.
