My heart literally skipped a beat when I got home after work at 10pm and saw the packet on my desk.
I thought it was never going to make it.
Another thing to mention before I start talking about this Album, Paul from RvS Music was very helpful and offered to refund when he heard I haven’t received a delivery in two weeks.
It calmed me down into giving it an extra couple days of wait which turn into tremendous anticipation and eventually exploded into excitement when I did the unboxing an hour ago.
I am listening to the tracks as I write and can’t get enough of the Asadinho kind of bass and deep house goodness.
The packaging seems a fruit of thoughtful design (although it could have been confiscated by the stingy Australian custom being contained in a wooden USB, hmm, we’ll talk about that later) and very ‘Dendrology’ indeed.
I think there’s a fair bit of technical issues on the distribution side of things that the label will have to work harder on make its fans happier than they are.
But I think this is relatively understandable being a long-term indie lover - I’ve just lost the will to complaint and critique after countless foul trials buying and selling tracks online..
Again I think Asadinho is great and when the beats hit the right part of my heart I think he’s beyond great.
I didn’t dig very deep into the Kendo Nagasaki reference but I think there is much more to anticipate behind that mask.
If you love deep house and grooves that makes you wanna go out at night and pretend it’s night time when it’s day time, then you’ve got to hand over your ears to Asadinho once in a while.
