Fake News Records
TBR: 27th December
Founded with a passion to rid the world of fake news, this prolific record company spans the whole table with various genres and artists taking up the good fight. Even John Lennon's music has been handed over by his estate, meaning that the giants of British music and beyond are all rooting for this cause. It seems like a fair while ago when I wrote about fake news back in 2016, the subject has become a lot more widespread for the right reasons since then. Even certain unpopular presidents know how cruel it can be. fckdsko and their offering of Dusk is the latest chapter in this crusade against lies. To make it even more relevant, as well as entertaining, the track is being sold to raise money for mental health care and awareness in N. America. Suffering through poor mental health is something also close to my heart, and I've written poetry recently on the subject.
The track starts with a thick layering of sound. A synthesiser tone revolves around a chunky rhythm which with mechanical accuracy, taps and catches the engineered sections of substance. As it swells and grows in the mental space, a new energy rings out in the form of an electric string with distorted edges playing an uplifting and intriguing melody. Another element joins in with a new key, allowing for harmonising phrases and patterns to run through droning sustains and choppy composition. The progression moves quickly, at a walking speed the surroundings evolve and adapt to new corners with every few paces. Ideal for musing to, or perhaps drawing inspired images, the effect of this experimental yet accessible sound is one of dreamy sky-painting, joining up the stars to form unique constellations that match the stories of our own lives.
