"Sour / Sweet" is a funky, brooding little piece of turntablism. Like the best cut and paste DJ's, Lilacs & Champagne sample a scattering of different recordings from all sorts of realities and find the rhythmic unity between them all. "We want to twist the knife as far as it can go into sample-based methodology, by taking pieces of loner music history and empowering them to shed light on both the pathetic side of human life and its improbable beauty." says one half of Lilacs & Champagne, Emil Amos. All we can say to that is indeed, and encourage you to experience it below.
This is from their upcoming album, Danish & Blue, out 4/23 on Mexican Summer.
