Dilated is the new 3-track EP from Nunca Duerma, released on Eliot Lipp‘s Old Tacoma Records. The EP is a collection of sample-based grooves and layered drums that will resonate on dance floors while also appealing to a critical listener’s sensibilities.
Attuned to the techniques of chopping and resampling, Nunca Duerma uses his affinity for Hip-Hop and expertise of warping to create a complex but appealing set of downtempo, soul-influenced, experimental tracks.
