CHLLNGR & Doctor Echo "Last Call"
It's been some time—too much time, some would say—since we heard new work from Copenhagen-via-California producer CHLLNGR, which is what makes news of the man's forthcoming collaborative album with Doctor Echo, called Hidden Tracks, such welcome news. "Last Call" provides our first glimpse into the partnership, with its gliding, G-funk-indebted synth runs and ghostly, dub-wise sonics yielding a track that is haunting in its ominous atmosphere. Thankfully, the production is also incredibly comforting due to the array of interwoven textures which make its sonic field unexpectedly inviting. We're told to expect nine similarly immersive pieces of dub-informed soundscapes when CHLLNGR & Doctor Echo's Hidden Tracks LP officially drops on September 24 via the Anicca label.
