The atmospheric pressure of the 2020 climate has, for many people, been disorienting. In the thick of hurricane-like conditions inside and out, it seems as though we've been tossed from one hair-raising situation to the next.
In the midst of the down bursts, we must eventually make it to the post-storm skies slathered in a rich spectrum of color gradients and cloud textures as the storm momentarily recedes. For that moment, it all comes together.
In Daily Bread's latest thematic release Purple Clouds, we witness various phases of his weather-inspired tracks. The five-track companion EP to his highly-celebrated 2016 album Cloud Conductor orchestrates a spectrum of sonic weathering experiences. From the calm and dreamy atmospheres to the downpours of unyielding bass designs, we're left weathered ourselves by the end.
The ATL producer remains celebrated among his peers and fans for his craft as a hardcore sample collector by way of crate digging, which supports his sonic storytelling throughout all of his works. In Purple Clouds, Daily Bread conducts an expansive soundscape of experimental bass grooves, while revisiting and redefining some of his past work. From the high pressure to the low pressure, we're shown a slideshow of patterns to process. In the end, we witness the post-storm illumination as we're laid down softly in "Gone on a Purple Cloud".
