Memory Tapes - Bicycle

Hey folks! I know many of you may be getting tired of the chillwave kick I’ve been on, but my aim every week is to let you guys know what’s getting heavy play on my iPod.

Operating under the moniker Memory Tapes, Dayve Hawk has been putting out music since late 2008, although like most chillwave artists, he really came into prominence the next year and released his first LP, Seek Magic, that summer. What I love most about his music is the complexity. It’s splendidly layered and the beats build and shift within the songs rather than keep a more homogenized feel. The electronic textures are viscid, the melodies are succinct, and the beats will at the very least make you bob your head along with the song (I often feel like getting up and dancing, but that’s just me). All of these qualities come together perfectly in this track.



Happy release day Memory Tapes. Stream the album over on the Quietus and read the pretty great track by track guide Dayve wrote. Today we sent out some pretty awesome remixes by Jensen Sportag, Seams and Nazca Lines which are streaming over on Soundcloud or sign up to the mailing list over on to download them. There’s also a rather nice playlist feature over on the independent , topped Hype Machine and unveiled a video to track 4 ‘Yes I Know’ that racked up over 500k of views
