DKA is elated to welcome TWINS & Rom, two of the Atlantic Seaboard's most mysterious, prolific and quietly lauded legends of uniquely challenging music. CH Rom is the impish conductor responsible for a content universe under his primary handle as well as among myriad collaborations such as Pump Media Unlimited, Spam, Wharp & Rom, Crustacean Committee, and of course his decades-long co-venture with TWINS, covering everything from 22nd century dance music to noir detective funk. The magnetic and majestic TWINS needs no introduction here at DKA, a member of the family and 15 illustrious years in as the man, body, and spirit behind TWINS, and a key member of other celebrated collaborative projects including the industrial bang and bash of Pyramid Club, with Chris Daresta, and the mutant new-new beat of Free Range with Ernestas Sadau.
R U Dreamy? Part II is the long-awaited to sequel to 2010’s cinemacore classic Part I. It is the culmination of years of cultivating a terrifying portfolio of new-age horror meditations, a scare-centered micro-symphony written and conducted by Hans Zimmer in a mummy costume, or Rugrats Halloween special directed and scored by Wes Carpenter, slowed to 0.75x playback speed.
In the self-contained para-cinematic universe of R U Dreamy? Part II, the listener is treated to a bounty of treats both terrifying and enchanting. Experience the simultaneous melancholic dread and sweeping grandeur of “Melodrama Arp” and “Dark Judgement”, or find yourself gently carried aloft the clouds of an imagined utopian Earth, healthy and in harmony with its inhabitants. Adding further depth to the Dreamyscape is the power poetics of Wait and Purple Max, who elevate “Museum Boss”, “The Zoos Are Forgotten” and “Noah’s World” with imagery of youthful whimsy and canine astral projection. The two round out a cast of illustrious guests that also includes Ryan Parks (aka DKA alum Fit of Body) and Joyous JL, contributing very scary synth bass and paranoid plastic guitar, respectively. “The zoos are forgotten, eyes are forgotten. I know no bounds.”
