Dropping To Disappear

a19

Portland label Dropping Gems was responsible for releasing last year’s well-received ‘Crisis’ album from Natasha Kmeto, which spawned a couple of remixes of the track ‘Deeply’ by King Britt in his Fhloston Paradigm guise that we featured here. More recently, the collective has just put out the fourth installment of it’s ‘Gem Drops’ series which sits neatly within the it’s lush electronic aesthetic and features generally more laid back sounds from label artists Kmeto, Phillip Grass, DJAO, Ghost Feet, and Devonwho, plus exclusives from guest artists such as Anenon, The Range, Pixelord and Free The Robots. The frankly huge twenty-one track collection includes dark pop pieces, blunted instrumental hip hop, busted disco and house workouts, brooding uptempo arrangements, relaxed pastoral compositions, and deeply experimental soundscapes which sit comfortably together considering the scope and wealth of material on offer.
