1.
I still hear the wind Darkness still stands At the end, I hear it I hear it A solid unified cry A plea to finish A call to agreement A bookmark in my thoughts I still hear the wind The cold comes I feel the sun drift across my eyes and lips The wind sings In choir tones Dark harmonies Of wood and metal Each window sings in a slightly different key As the torrent spins around me I step outside As the torrent spins around me I step outside My basket is Suddenly full With love. My heart grows Each board whistles And springs And bends I still hear the wind I still hear the wind

Amen Ok Go go go go go go go go go go go go go Yeah Go go go go go go go go go go go go go Amen Amen Go go go go go go go go go go go go go Yeah Go go go go go go go go go go go go go Amen Ok Go go go go go go go go Yeah Amen Amen

The cold comes It feels like sleep I feel sun drift Across my Eyes and lips The wind sings In choir tones Dark harmonies Of wood and metal Each window sings In a slightly Different key Each board whistles And springs And bends As the torrent Spins around me I step outside A hearth opens Above me Baking and basking My basket is Suddenly full With love My sight clears Of ice My heart grows I still hear The wind The darkness still stands I know another, Adjacent space At the end I hear it That solid, unified Cry A plea to finish A call to agreement A bookmark in My thoughts

about

In 2006 the song "Achmen" appeared on Boy Blue, a collection of weird, organic loops that had evolved into crazed takes on everything from funky house and breakbeat to progressive trance and drum n bass.

After re-releasing Boy Blue in early 2021, Dave Espionage took the inspiration of the chopped, breakbeats, droning bass lines, and wild arpeggios of the original track and sculpted three new takes on the original. This time with modern production, slightly better studio acoustics, and a severe lack of trash trucks showing up at 2am during prime production hours.

The trio of tracks here are what one might call a buffet. You've got your appetizer of progressive-breaks-house-not-really that takes you on a sci-fi journey of breaks, explosions, and strange messages floating in air. Second up is the main course that takes the spirit of Baltimore club and Jersey bounce with a healthy dose of bass and an epic trap breakdown to send your head spinning. Last is a gentle lay-down, ambient take by Dagger Dash to lull you into sleep before setting an epic finale at the close.
