Valance Drakes | "Freedom Is Its Own Kind Of Salary" | laaps | 2020



Valance Drakes es un artista de Bulgaria que tiene varios lanzamientos en su discografía editada en sellos como Detroit Underground, Amek, M-Tronic. y "Freedom Is Its Own Kind Of Salary", es su cuarto álbum hasta ahora y primero para laaps, sello paralelo a la etiqueta francesa Eilean Rec. que realiza ediciones limitadas en vinilo y que es conducida por Mathias Van Eecloo.

Drakes trabaja con registros de campo y sampleos de distintas fuentes que procesa en su computadora, creando atmósferas inquietantes, con palpitaciones dub y con algunos atisbos al ambient. No obstante esta simbiosis tiene sus facetas abstractas que contienen sonidos electrónicos retorcidos, con un carácter orgánico como si removieran nuestras entrañas. Es esta complejidad la que va en paralelo a esa sensación de movimiento con ritmos aletargados pero que igual nos hacen movernos de donde estamos. Es un movimiento constante, seductor e incluso esperado para transportarnos hacia otro lugar. Drakes hace posible que podamos viajar a través de sus líneas ambientales melódicas.

Valance Drakes is an artist from Bulgaria who has several releases in his discography published on labels such as Detroit Underground, Amek, M-Tronic, and "Freedom Is Its Own Kind Of Salary", is his fourth album so far and first for laaps, a sister label of French imprint Eilean Rec. that makes limited editions on vinyl and is hosted by Mathias Van Eecloo.

Drakes works with field recordings and samples from different sources that he processes on his computer, creating haunting atmospheres, with dub palpitations and with some hints to ambient. However, this symbiosis has its abstract facets that contain twisted electronic sounds, with an organic character as if they were stirring our entrails. It is this complexity that goes in parallel to that sensation of movement with lethargic rhythms but that still make us move from where we are. It is a constant, seductive and even expected movement to transport us to another place. Drakes makes it possible for us to travel through his melodic ambient lines.
