Dear darklings – enough sitting, enough self-reflection, enough calmness, enough stillness. Time to overturn things, time to channel a different energy, time to embrace the spur of the moment and enjoy the catharsis that follows an explosion of energy. It will feel chaotic, exhilarating, somewhat long-time coming and, most definitely, violently happy. This playlist is a sonic orgy of banging electro, noise, IDM, punk rock and gothic poems that somehow dissolve into a dark folk, rock, dreamy, ethereal dance through a jazz, soul improvisational pathway. Enjoy it as loud as you can because … il y a des enfants qui disent non, il y a des enfants et c’est nous!
Sunken Paths Part 2 sees Darren venturing further in the sonic woodlands, taking in sounds from experimentations with theremins, through gentle ambient textures, mournful yet uplifting neufolk tales and ethereal high-pagan church rock, before getting lost down an electro-hauntology fork and ending up somewhere in Dutch Punkland. Can this be pulled off in the space of an hour? We’ll let you decide.
