Imagine escaping from a sarcophagus. You’re making your way out of a hidden tomb, and finally catching a glimpse of daylight gleaming through a crack in the wall. You’re pushing with all of your weight to move the door which has kept you hidden for thousands of years; your atrophied muscles aren’t much use. Your dusty lungs take in one last gaping breath, and you push one last push with all your might. The door moves just enough so that you can squeeze through. Now you’re fearing for your life because the sun is much brighter than you imagined. You quickly retreat back into your tomb and find an elevator door that reads “Hell.” You start your journey down the elevator shaft. You witness scenes of lifeless bodies floating in purgatory; breathless souls staring at you wide-eyed, sleepless, lifeless, and Godless. You see your destination as bats fly up at you like Mongolian warriors, shredding your mummified arms with their razor sharp wings. They pluck out your eyes and replace them with Christmas lights. Now put this image into sound. You have Italic Indian. Blowing our minds with sonic journeys, story-telling and scenery that our minds dare not wander on their own…

Has this world’s maddening pace got you feeling down and out? Is your soul in need of nurturing? We felt like that too, until this serene “sprout session” wherein Juilianna Barwick flooded our studio with such a heavenly chorus that, for a fleeting 36 minutes, we left this world completely. We floated in the air as all of our hopes and dreams melted into layer after layer of vocal loops cascading down like beautiful, healing waves. We sat on clouds. We cleansed our minds and souls completely. Now it’s your turn. Inspiring, angelic and reassuringly human, this one woman choir will make time stop all around around you. For more Julianna Barwick, check out her latest EP “Florine” on Florid Recordings.

Collage visionaries the Books are one of our favorite high-thinking/feeling bands. They were kind enough to stop by dublab again to share some of their conceptual magic with the world. As the finale for our 10th Anniversary Proton Drive they created an absolutely mind-blurring mix of wide sound sources. Once your ears have had a few decades to fully absorb this offering be sure to check out their dublab “Found Sound” session from a few years back.

This very special sprout session will hypnotize you. Disregard the future and abandon the past, for here The Present will be your only focus. Erase your mind and allow these drones to guide your eyes from left to right… when we snap our fingers, you will awaken into a world of tropical thumping and circus reverie. Your body is now weightless, hang 10 on these sound waves while you float in and out of time and space. Enjoy wandering through this new dimension of sound – and don’t forget to come down!

We trust you’ll dig this infectious dublab “sprout session” recorded live during the dublab Proton Drive. Be sure to wrap your ears around Javelin’s album No Mas out now on Luaka Bop.
