about

NOTE: Both sides of this double album, Causes & Conditions, are on the same cassette.

Producer Dylan Cameron makes his HOLODECK debut with an epic double album. Samsara: Causes and Conditions displays a wide range of styles and influences across its throbbing hi-fi dance-voyage hemispheres. Cameron’s drum and synth tones show an absolute mastery of sound design and a profound merging of analogue with digital, and hardware with software. The A side, Causes, is a collection of deep house jams that create a warm pocket of four-on-the-floor bass rhythms and hard thumping kick drums. The songs are deeply infectious, pacifying in a way that lulls its listener into a serene locked-groove entrancement. The low-end pulses heavily, forming corporeal sub-frequencies that trade off massaging the mind and body. The high level of production throughout Samsara is immediately apparent even when played on the cheapest computer speakers – all frequencies available to the human ear have been designed, mixed, and placed with an almost surgical precision, creating a rare environment of aural balance and [literally] tangible sinewaves.

The B side, Conditions, goes in a darker and more ambient direction, with processed diva samples, eerie string swells, and two-step beats more reminiscent of South London than Central Texas. Massive bass tones are accented by an assortment of constantly morphing clicks and high-hats that create an overall intoxicating calm while still maintaining a drive that keeps its listener in perpetual motion. The last song is a dance remix of an unreleased Troller track; Dylan C is also the producer/engineer for Troller and Thousand Foot Whale Claw and has mastered most of the HOLODECK releases so far, and hails out of Austin as a part of the Elevator Action DJ crew.
