Lord Raja: Amadeus

1. Product Details

What does a daydream sound like? Is it an audible confidence boost, a concentrated dose of caffeine shot straight into the bloodstream of dancing feet, a blue so overwhelmingly electric it's field stretches as far as the eye can see? On Amadeus, the latest Ghostly effort from New York's Lord Raja, the shapeshifting producer answers his own question with a cunning, childlike purity not felt since he started tinkering with Fruity Loops aged six.

On standout "O.K" his customary percussive potpourri mingles with vocal chops and an electro bounce even the most humorless club patron couldn't resist. "Black Coffee," another highlight, features synth lines so darkly acidic they should come with toxic warnings. RAJA describes the track title as a literal take - a soundtrack to jolt first date jitters, a call to cool courage. Amadeus, meanwhile, he suggests is a cheeky nod to the complex richness of his musical heritage. He says, "I think it's kinda funny to flip an idea of western imperialism and how it proliferated. It's playful as an Indian man to call yourself Amadeus, knowing how much composers borrowed from eastern classical influences." Now being released on vinyl for the first time in collaboration with Detroit's YHS Records, the original eight track EP has been ex
