About a month or so ago I wrote a little bit about music as spatial landscapes. For whatever reason – I’m not going to question fate, destiny, or coincidence – I had an oddly profound text-versation with someone I’ve met once in my life but had an unspeakable, intimate, and rather unexpected connection with that’s allowed us to develop some vague sense of trust (?). Anyway, we were “discussing” those little imaginary spaces we created when we were younger. You know, tiny dream spaces with disco-lit side walks like the Billie Jean music video and James Bond was real and savin’ tha world…or maybe that was just mine…Anyway what wasn’t asked during our talk was why are we ashamed of having those spaces now? Is it an shame thing? Or is it “childish?” I don’t know, I personally don’t believe we ever throw them away or give them up. They grow with us and we enter and modify it every time we listen to a solid track.
This evening I’m bringing you a lush world to escape to. The world of Maths Time Joy is sublime to say the least. There are several layers to this track off the 22 year-old British producer’s freshman 2012 EP – Hideaway. Each stirring synth and droned out vocal sample come together in a euphoric drop and release here. The percussion elements and quick claps keep the song alive while the sounds twirl and spin around each other through an ethereal playground.
Tell me the world this takes you too isn’t anything short of bliss and I’d tell you you’re deaf. Check out the rest of Maths Time Joy’s EP on soundcloud. His sound is a total environmental escape. Laying down, closing your eyes, and remaining still is highly recommended.
