- Tiny Mix Tapes
“Blanton works some sampler magic to transport listeners to that blissful space right between dreaming and waking up.”

Drape is the Pacific Northwest ambient duo of Ryan Gracey and Spencer Williams. Their latest EP release “EVENSONGS” is a generous offering and a great example of the classic Drape sound. Celestial tones of nature-inspired vestibules and dynamic cloud blankets floating through lucid forms are what makes this release a loop/repeat kind of record! Released Aug.27th – BARO29

…Sitting somewhere between a Laramie swagger and gone sauna tropes, past “boom bap” trysting places are ghosted in “T R I S H”, leaving behind a Dymaxion house with a crawl space showing where the beat escaped so that the house could breathe. All material recorded at his home studio Burnco, in beautiful Berkeley, CA from 2006-2013. Mastered by Matthewdavid. BARO28
