I really liked that first album - discovered it by accident when it was misidentified as a pre-release Autechre track actually.

Hke has a podcast these days and has been asked multiple times if there’s going to be another 2814 album. His answer is “maybe” ... which I guess is better than a straight up “no”

Oh so it's an EP, I was confused there for a second. Whatever, I'll take it.

Nice, will dig in later. Honestly when it comes to sample-free projects involving Telepath, I much prefer Televape to 2014, which I guess comes down to a personal preference for Vaperror's melodic and production sensibilities over HKE's.

Pre-2016 Telepath/Virtual Dream Plaza is a whole other ballgame and contains some of the most transcendent music of the last decade.

Also anyone who digs this stuff should check out Desert Sand Feels Warm At Night. British dude who's taking sample-free slushwave to new heights these days:

lol he's already released like six albums this year, clearly he's the real deal. I'll check out his stuff, thanks.

oh this is lovely. and, like a lot of other albums I respect this year, hilariously long

Really happy that a photo I took of telepath at electronicon last year made it to discogs

/humblebrag sorry

ncxkd, Saturday, 12 September 2020 00:38 (five months ago) link

Haha nice pic. I was there too—such a legendary day.

J. Sam, Saturday, 12 September 2020 04:57 (five months ago) link

An instrumental version of the desert sand feels warm at night album would be an EOY contender for me.

obviously this project is whatever its members want it to be, but it's difficult for me to discern any collaboration this latest EP (Voyage / Embrace). Voyage is clearly an HKE track and the latter is pure latter-day nu-age Telepath. Even the title of the project reflects this...

Oh thank God. If I remember correctly, weren't Face to Face (imo his masterpiece) and This Past Future also deleted a while back? Looks like they're back too.

J. Sam, Saturday, 20 February 2021 04:53 (one week ago) link

Still think Your Love is his best.

Yeah that one's up there for me too. That first track especially is so epic. Really everything he did from mid-2014 through late 2015 is pure genius.

J. Sam, Saturday, 20 February 2021 05:03 (one week ago) link

^ re: Your Love

You can hear hke’s contribution of compositon when you a / b 2814 with Tele’s solo work

calstars, Saturday, 20 February 2021 05:33 (one week ago) link

Yeah definitely. Tele's ultimate talent is that of sound manipulation, i.e. slushifying things. You can hear the same thing with Vaperror's compositions on the Televape albums: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fL52y39IMKU

J. Sam, Saturday, 20 February 2021 05:35 (one week ago) link

I'll put this here since it seems to be the de-facto slushwave thread, but Desert Sand just dropped a new (sample-free) album: https://desertsand.bandcamp.com/album/--24
I'm like 4 tracks in and it's dreamy and uplifting as you'd expect, but maybe less sedate than usual.

Stunning cover art by Lunitas too:

“This is a 2814 thread”
I don’t want to disparage the scene but desert is just a little boring

calstars, Saturday, 27 February 2021 01:39 (six days ago) link

Love lunitas though
