Rani de Leon – Old World Radio: case study 001 for dublab (07.25.12)

“case study 001 for dublab” is a collection of field recordings taken from all over the world and pressed onto vinyl, in addition to other songs of similar resonance. All the recordings included in this mix are sounds I’ve been digging lately. As a listener, I’ve always been a seeker of music that brings me closer to the root, or the source of all things. I think field recordings (vs. studio recordings) are a much closer translation of reality and therefore stirs something in me that over-produced recordings do not, which is why I gravitate towards them. Unfortunately, a lot of musicians on these recordings were not given proper credit, so we’ll have to do with track names. Hope you enjoy! – Rani de Leon
