Jamaican Spirits hash-n-chopped by Smoke Machine
About this guy.
Smoke machine is Santa Ana based DJ, and producer, Jourdan Gallemore. He is also one half of Datadrone and the founder of Datadronerecords. He makes electronic beats, DJ's all sort of music, and is a walking music encyclopedia. Jourdan's right in my backyard and I can't give this guy enough props.
Why I like this
Jamaican Spirits is a very accessible psychedelic, trip hop-ey track that gently nudges the listener through five plus minutes of drones, vocals, and rhythmic ambience stitched together with a great beat. Things start out with some cut up vox that lead in to some shifty electronic percussion. The echoey, droney synths, and sampled lyrics that come in a few seconds later shoot this track in to a great headspace. As the track continues, you are gently ushered a little deeper in to this really cool and psychedelic sonic space that never feels weird, and always grooves. I dig this.
