Club Mate and weed-drenched collab from Melbourne-based retroactive house producer Roland Tings and co-conspirator Nathan Savage, entirely improvised out of eight 11-hour days in an old converted governmental administration building next to a scrap yard on the canal in Berlin. Focusing on super warm, scruffy textures and consciously avoiding tempos of 115 - 130 for a classic ambient electronic zone with a strong “club” backbone, "Brain Foam" is obliquely jacked on the same Tings luxury that made "Milky Way" so engaging. These two have found encountered deep, flowing sounds amongst the amp hiss; bright pulsing synth spaces with a strong rhythmic core, like the hazy shells of the tracks playing in the club the night before being filled up again with sun and smoke.
A beautiful, fuchsia neon-lit city filled with the lost escaping souls of urban dwellers, still aimlessly wandering the futuristic metropolis for a place to call "home", Birth of a New Day is perhaps the single most defining vaporwave album ever created. It's a record that, even after every passing year, does not ever cease to amaze me for what telepath and HKE managed to create through this internet masterpiece of a record. Quota
