Following April's 'EXIST' EPs, CUTS returns with 'Dream Voyager' EP, consisting of remixes from shoegaze legends Slowdive and Village Green labelmate Ben Chatwin.
"Dream Voyager is completely influenced by my experiences with sleep paralysis – feeling conscious but locked in your dream world whilst it takes place around you in your paralysed state. It’s like you become a witness to your own dream. It’s a portal of confusion where the narrative is blurred. You become the dream voyager." - Anthony Tombling Jr, CUTS.
Reflecting these experiences, the electric hum, pounding drums and indistinct vocals (Patti Aberhart) of 'Dream Voyager' provide a perfect introduction to the eight tracks that comprise the tenebrous 'EXIST' EPs. Developing the mood of that project even further, Slowdive remould 'Dream Voyager' in their image by adding a pulsating heartbeat and swathes of hazy, atmospheric guitar while Chatwin transforms the tune into a turbulent workout decked with cascading analogue synths and wild, distorted percussion.
