New Al Lover? Sign me up!
Expect the unexpected, this guy follows his own path. Stolen Body Records is releasing the psychedelic beat-guru’s take on his own “Cave Ritual” on August 10th, and I can think of none better to introduce him further!
“For those who arenâ€™t already familiar with the workings of Al Lover then allow Stolen Body Records to introduce you to this exceptional, experimental producer from San Francisco â€“ who has been gaining much notoriety for his melding of contemporary past garage and psychedelic rock into harsh yet spacey abrasive beats. Influenced as much by The 13th Floor Elevators as DJ Shadow, Al Combines crunchy drums, shaky percussion, chopped samples and layers of textured effects to create an unexplored path for psychedelic music, offering an earthy and loose approach that sounds more like youâ€™re listening to a DMT fueled psych band than a beat made on an MPC.
Cave Ritual Redux exhibits Al Lover re-inventing his already unique style by adding a new dimension to his previous album Cave Ritual released at the end of last year. With this offering, Al Lover takes older ideas and reinvigorates them with new textures, layers, imagination and creates a new body of mind altering work.”
Good for your soul, good for your spirit. Now go get it!
My bet is on the Secret Colored Vinyl being something really rad..Â Stolen Body Records always provides the awesome slabs, and has quite the colorful catalogue to browse back on!
Itâ€™s not often in todayâ€™s world that you come across an artist who has found a unique form of self-expression, seemingly operating on his or her own trajectoryâ€™ â€“ The Quietus
â€˜Al Lover is most well-known for his ability to be a non-synthy/trappy/basic beat-maker, and instead a psych-producer, which is very rare. He is quite literally the only one who does what he doesâ€™ â€“ Noisey
