沙漠鱿鱼 – 上海／香港
Re-release and Chopped / Screwed
The highly acclaimed album “Shanghai / Hong Kong”, by the legendary duo “DesertSquid”, is now available again on a re-released cassette and also as a Chopped / Screwed version on cassette! It is time to return to the neon dreampunk streets of beautiful Shanghai and bustling Hong Kong.
It’s time to revisit 上海／香港 with the new re-release of the cassette, but this time with updated artwork! The iconic front cover remains the same, but the obi-strip and cassette body have been update for this new version.
CHOPPED / SCREWED BY UNCLE SQUIDZ
Chopped / Screwed represents the other side of the Shanghai / Hong Kong coin: a warped mirror; tumbling down and down into a well of a reality so similar to your own, but reaching out yields sensory loss. Wearing a veil of a dream-state – things that are normally recognizable are smudged out, living only in the peripheral. Released with reworked artwork!
“沙漠鱿鱼” is a collaboration project between Desert Sand Feels Warm at Night and Uncle Squidz. On their debut album “上海／香港” (Shanghai / Hong Kong) both artists take us to the neon lit streets of Shanghai and Hong Kong, where rain keeps on falling and falling. The sound can be best described as distant melodies and slow evolving pads that are building up to a true dreampunk slush dream.
The album has been produced in 2019 by both artists after they met on Twitter and briefly exchanged messages, they soon found out they both wanted to work on a project. The sound they created is a blend between their existing styles which is heavily based around ambient and slushwave music, taking ideas from vaporwave such as sample manipulation and incorporating them into lush soundscapes. Both sides of the album are dedicated to each respective city; Shanghai and Hong Kong.
