Raime kick off their new RR label with a record that’s really grown on me a lot this past week. Their industrial, jungle, grime and dub influences are stripped right back to the core, leaving bare minimal skeletal remnants play out in these three very spacious, immaculate and pristine productions. Collaged throughout the chimes, strings and basslines are lots of snippets and fragments of found dialogue that create that feeling of sleep deprivation or coming down on acid where loads of little voices enter one's mind with absurd little transient phrases that can be surreal or even seem profound. It perhaps borders on psychosis where the lines between reality and the imagined are truly blurred. Even without pharmaceuticals - that hypnagogic state right between sleep and wakefulness can bring these peculiar voices. I’ve always put it down to the brain filtering out all the useless nonsense we absorb to make room for more useful information and knowledge - maybe it happens to folks more these days with all the stuff we absorb online. But then, who knows, the voices could be real - maybe their communications from worlds beyond our own. These tracks really tap into the notion of what’s real, imagined or synthetic and how technology can increasingly create illusions. It’s a trippy record for sure, traversing the euphoric and paranoid  - the way they use negative space really creates high tension at times and some of the dialogue can be quite unnerving. The duo conjures a really enticing, otherworldly dreamlike environment with a real high definition clarity that lures you in. It's an eerie place that’s thrilling to get disoriented and lost inside.
