Rafting Starlit Everglades
Label: Basement's Basement
Inspired by an encounter with Daedelus, Baths is Will Wiesenfeld's contribution to Los Angeles' leftfield beat scene. Adopting the crumpled breakbeats of artists like Prefuse 73, Flying Lotus and Daedelus himself, Baths distinguishes itself with sunny, psychedelic melodies and acoustic instrumentation like viola, contrabass and guitar, sampled and looped into delicate filigrees. Somewhere between Animal Collective and J Dilla, it's restlessly inventive and brimming with joy.
