If you read these pages regularly, you are already familiar with Davye Hyde (a.k.a. Memory Tapes), but you may not have heard his pre-Memory Tapes material. Released only shortly before he adopted the Memory Tapes names, Memory Cassette is pretty much what you’d expect from the man: beautifully hypnotic melodies flowing over slow, bubbling beats. Definitely one of chillwave’s finest. You can purchase the rest of the EP at Amazon or iTunes.
A few thoughts I’d love to hear your opinion on:
1) Chillwave: love it/hate it/still wondering what it is?
2) Is chillwave here to stay for the foreseeable future?
3) What would you pair this one with? I’m thinking: rocket pop.
Don’t forget to “heart” our songs on hypem if you like what you hear!
