Brain Rays & Quiet - Slacker (inc. Coco Bryce Remix)
Release Date: 30th July 2021
Further 160 hybrid ingenuity from Brain Rays & Quiet, and another 1.21 gigawatt fly-by from the future-past-future-present: opening with an abject shock to the portions of your brain that recognise time, the monstrous 'Slacker' comprehensively dysregulates you with its undeniable poly-rhythmic intensity and properly galactic scope, prior to the comparatively lush and sensual footwork vibes of 'Tigress Canisha', an edit of which featured in a short film for Vogue Italia by Stella Asia Consonni in 2019.
Alongside a re-mastered version of 'Ataru Flip' from their full-fat 'Butter' album of last year, a fleet-footed Coco Bryce remix powers through on the B-side, before an indulgent Pesh remix rounds things up in abstract footwork style as a digital-only exclusive. Despite invoking Robert Zemeckis' 'Back to the Future' and Richard Linklater's delirious lo-fi sentiments of more than 30 years ago, Brain Rays & Quiet prove themselves to be increasingly synonymous with a thoroughgoing species of future funk, which is to say, with a post-generic hybrid vibe that is somehow properly timeless, infectious as shit and undoubtedly full of spunk. Enjoy it in your ride in motion, rub it on your skin like lotion.
