Rare Times Guest Mix for Purple Sneakers on FBi Click
Had a long day at the office? How about a crazy weekend that led to a hangover of ungodly proportions (like me)? Well, not to worry fellow readers and/or gurners, because we have got a guest mix for you this week that’ll set your dials back to ‘rejuvenate’.
This week’s 30 minute guest mix for the PURPLE SNEAKERS SHOW ON FBI CLICK is brought to us by the LA-based duo RARE TIMES.
RARE TIMES are a duo that evade genres within the electronic realm and who have most recently lent their exceptional, multi-faceted talents to fellow LA-dweller and best-bud GROUNDISLAVA (who also recently appeared on guest mix duties).
Appearing collaboratively on GIL‘s album ‘Frozen Throne’, the RARE TIMES boiz have helped turn the album into a retro-futuristic, cyperpunk masterpiece.
For recent listeners, on the PURPLE SNEAKERS SHOW ON FBI CLICK, we spoke about sonic journeys – and it was coincidentally the same week we debuted the RARE TIMES guest mix. Strictly speaking – you’ll wanna turn down the lights and grab a bean bag for this one.
An odyssey of ambient soundscapes effortlessly blended with deeply textured house and experimental electronica, the RARE TIMES mix is a perfect example of forward-thinking, leftfield art.
