Every once in a while I get to be fortunate enough to know a real musician who isn’t a percussionist who produces fantastic records.
They don’t last long in Boston, so Camino 84 (a.k.a. Ryan Lucht) will probably be moving to New York or LA (Hollywood area probably) after his latest EP, Don’t Read This. You Will Be Kissed… hits the Bandcamp virtual record shop shelves.
The content of this 24-minute extended play album surpasses all my expectations. I’ve listened to the previously released singles, “Oh My (ft. Sidney Gish)”. From front to back, DRTYWBK blurs between ambience with calming melodies like on “Methods Of Flotation” and (what I suspect to be) actual memes in “The Butt Dance (ft. lol-Madzz).” And of course it has your classic dance sounds with heavy sampling with “Shining” and “Breaking Free,” and more relaxed beats for “AM Transmission”, and “Oh My (ft. Sidney Gish).”
I suggest that you, the reader, go listen to this sweet half-hour of music from the man who is helping shape the future of disco and funk. You can buy Camino’s new release on Bandcamp for just a few bucks. Trust me, it’s worth it. You can also follow my boy Ryan on Facebook, Twitter, and Soundcloud.
