Liquid Amber embraces boombox era with cassette release from DJ Harrison

DJ Harrison releases teaser from upcoming ‘Songs From The Black Water‘ EP, out now exclusively on cassette via Liquid Amber.

In this digital age, it’s unusual to find an artist dedicated to embracing a true analog approach. DJ Harrison is from that rare breed, and his new EP ‘Songs From The Black Water’ proves it. Although musically grounded in the modern era, this EP was not made on a laptop, and you won’t find it on Soundcloud (other than a single and teaser), iTunes, Spotify, Beatport or anywhere else as a digital product. The place you will find it is on a cassette, where the authenticity of tape brings out the organic, feel-good vibes of Harrison’s Dilla-esque hip hop soundscapes.

“I think it reflects an age of when the beat tape SHOWED who a producer was, before the age of the internet,” says Harrison, real name Devonne Harris, of the project. The EP’s opening line, “In this simulation, this record will take the place of the computer,” couldn’t hold more true.
