The sound of slashsound 2018 is found in 1.1. It is an inherent snapshot of the now.
With the success of RETURN, we are bringing what is immediate to our ear; all the projects happening in our creative lives; who we’ve been collaborating with in 2018. 1.1 contains the fierce melting chiptune of Phong Tran, paired with the chill lava lamp soundscapes of Daniel Rhode, between the digital soundprints of members of Echo Chamber and GVSUNME, under the sweltering gravity of skullcap5050.
Take a seat, look at your lawn or a lava lamp, pop a craft brew and listen to 1.1 as a manifesto for spring. not a manifesto of any grandiose worldview, just a collection of sounds we think are awesome.
slashsound1.1 is an invitation to hang with our crew, try some sounds and look forward. and if you like some of these sounds, let’s be friends.
