Itâs a Double A Side and first up is the widescreen cinemascape of âAmerican Dreamerâ. Inspired by their obsession with rugged Americana, it soundtracks the vastness of the plains, the emptiness of the desert and that sense of an eternal slow-motion line on the horizon, unmoving and unblinking, that can only be filled by the largesse of Dennis Hopper and his band of tragic cult heroes.
The second track âMZ Medleyâ takes us back to the heady days of the late 70âs and the pioneering edit culture of Tom Moulton, Walter Gibbons and Francois K.
That original reel to reel work led to the early cut n paste disco medleys and whilst the new generation of splice and dicers have yet to reference this particular segment of vinyl culture, when youâre continually searching for the next horizon like Matt & Joel, its no surprise that youâre going to latch on to the rawness and excitement of those original experiments and incorporate that vibe and flow into your own future-proofed productions.
