about

We continue the Digital / 10-inch series in collaboration with fellow California based Ooohh! That's Heavy Recordings and Swiss imprint Mism Records. This time around we present a project crafted in the mind of the “One-Man Band” Glen Porter , entitled “The Devil is A Dancer, the Piper is a Madman”.

Two Years in the making, this project is a multi-movement sound-scape that touches on the contrasting themes of life (sadness, happiness, courage, fear, etc).

We set sail deep within the psyche with the drum heavy accordion screamer “The Devil is a Dancer”. Here, Porter takes his trademark emotionally driven production to new heights with the use of his own voice in the form of a sea shanty. We reach the shore but soon travel “Over the Mountains, Through the Jungle, And into the Cave”. Resting in an acoustic haze we find moments of pure psychedelic bliss.


Format: instrumental-hip-hop,beats,sample-based
Joyful moans turn to anxious shrieks as we follow the hypnotic rhythms and discover “The Piper is a Madman”. The vinyl version of the project ends with the epic “Ask her nicely and she’ll show you the scars” and as the title suggests, its layers are memorable and more than skin deep.

The cover art was created by British designer Oliver Cartwright (www.olivercartwright.com) in collaboration with L.A based photographer Volker Fleck. The cover is a figurative illustration of the record’s title. This project is limited to 300 vinyl copies worldwide and is also available in digital format featuring additional tracks (Forget, Kiss the Pretty Ones Goodbye) and a remix from Yppah (Ninjatune).
