100% Electronica boss George Clanton boldly going where no vaporwave artist has gone before... recording under their government name. Anything is fair game on Slide, a landmark record which sees the artist formerly known as Esprit 空想 and Mirror Kisses casting aside pitched-down funk and pilfering the aesthetics of TRL-era mainstays you probably tried really hard to forget, like Third Eye Blind and Tonic, but casting an even wider berth with the shuffling breakbeats (and baggy clothes) of Stone Roses and the ubiquitous detuned warble of Boards Of Canada (not to mention, vaporwave!), and going even deeper into your college hard drive with a touch of American Football. Harsh noise, breakbeats, indie guitars, phat analog brass and Clanton’s yearning vocals coalesce serendipitously, like a kindred spirit to that new Yves Tumor record. Highlights include “Dumb” “You Lost Me There” “Walk Slowly” and “Make It Forever.” We got a few copies of the limited edition blue & black splatter colored vinyl straight from the source, limited to 500, these won’t last.
