Garrett Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
A lot of people are guesstimating that Garrett is the secretive alias of boogietronica legend Dam-Funk. While this has been neither confirmed nor denied at the time of writing (17:00, 29th October, Year Of Our Lord 2018) people are, like, 99.9% sure - D-F’s real name is Damon GARRETT Riddick, after all. What’s more, the smooth-ass synth tracks that make up the Private Life II LP bear more than a passing resemblance to the D-F sound. This one’s out via Music From Memory.
A new(!) one from everyday synth archivists Music From Memory sees ambient rocker Garrett mix wahing guitar signals with oscillating synths, combining washy chord overtures with thrilling rhythmic pulsations. Private Life comes with little information contextualising it, presenting the "mysterious" LA artist on his own terms. Expect lounge instrumentals, a smattering of funk and twelve minute prog meditations.
