Next on Audio Gourmet, we welcome Krakow, Poland based artist Lights Dim. The man behind the project is Marek Kaminski, who has previously graced the Audio Gourmet label with his contribution to the Just A Moment compilation, released in 2011.
Marek has also self-released an album, which has since been made available again through AZH Promo and Preserved Sound.
Marek has been making music for around seven years both on his own and in numerous bands, such as New Century Classics - a post rock ensemble.
His solo work as Lights Dim approaches layers of melody, still dervied from musical instruments as with a band, yet their respective parts are allowed only a small contribution to the overall soundscape. Together as a mass, these small elements make up the bold and emotive textured sounds that are on offer here in 'Deep Summer'.
The idea behind this EP was to create a piece of work, that would take the listener on a one day journey to a dry and dusty city, where they would experience the heat and the dirt of an urban summer. This is represented within the first two tracks. After these are allowed to settle in for a few minutes, eventually some comfort and rest is brought in to close the set in the form of 'Parades', which is intended to represent night fall, when the heat would subside a relieving calm sets in.
