Dreams "Crown Chakra"
- Words: Glenn Jackson
"Crown Chakra" serves as the opening effort for Los Angeles producer/visual artist Jesse Pimenta's (a.k.a. Dreams) latest EP, a collection of three club-wise tracks self-released as a free EP and an online web experience. Said to be made using a combination of sampling and sounds culled from an '80s-era Korg DW-6000 synth, "Crown Chakra" spends as much time chopping up its space-age chords and FX as it does running through a series of potent variations on its jacking rhythms—resulting in an efficient but effective club track. Also serving as the head of the fledgling Private Selection label, Pimenta's latest EP can be heard/scene as part of an interactive web experience here, where a link to download Dreams' full three-track record can also be found.
