Multi Culti cultural co-honcho Dreems returns to conjure some of the best vibes currently imaginable with Rose Bay, an EP that doubles as a preview of his forthcoming album, Diamond Bay.
The music evokes the sunny innocence of his youth as a future label owner growing up in Sydney, before he plunged into a long hero’s journey into nightlife, from which he would eventually emerge with wisdom, understanding, and incredibly shredded abs.
Named after a suburb on the edge of Sydney Harbour, “Point Piper” is a slow-building epic, providing a lucid glimpse into the same Cetacean Worldmind that has saved Axl Rose’s life on any number of occasions. Meanwhile, “Milk Beach” invites listeners to imagine themselves floating on the bay, placidly chugging Bamboo Shoot Quik to the placid chug of this low-BPM chill-out gem.
“Milk Beach” also gets a remix from Ecuadorian folklorica master Nicola Cruz, who surprised everyone in the banging community by turning in one of his bangingest efforts yet. Finally, the EP is capped by an 11-minute acid-disco remix of “Coasters Retreat” by Berlin super-producer Sascha Funke, to date the only parent on the Multi Culti roster. Father’s make up 23 percent of potential record buyers, and while you may not like those odds, you do have to respect them.
