Birthed from life in isolation in a self-made simple seaside studio during the first peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, Raz Olsher a.k.a. Bassically, developed his new album Audio Diaries (out 27th Nov), a selection of 13 tracks compiled from a broader personal audio journal taking us on a journey through a dynamic range of UK dance music.
First single Isan Molam is built on a hypnotic house groove, flecked with tasty flavours of Thailand’s northeastern region. It’s hypnotically addictive!
From beginning to end the album is a tantalising journey through the whole range of emotions and experiences that an individual has gone through during the Pandemic and a deeply expressive artifact of the current times in which we live with incredible flair for experimentation and big infectious tunes throughout.
Latest single, You Got It moves into an ambient territory with droning pads, subtle atmospherics and progressing trip-hop style beats and jazzy moments.
