Known most notably for his productions as DJ Wey and DJ Python, Luis’ (Brian Pineyro) sound ranges from reggae to melodic breakbeat, depending on what persona the artist chooses to indulge himself in. He also quadruples as the lesser known DJ Xanex.
The NYC producers latest work comes in the form of an ambient IDM twelve inch titled Dreamt Takes. The four original tracks are beautifully constructed; drawing inspiration from displaced persons to produce sound rich in warm melodies and emotion.
‘HV’s Sequence’ is our pick of the bunch. The EP is expected on the 25th November. Expect to hear those laid back vibes a lot soon.
