Brooklyn-based label Bastard Jazz recently released the latest instalment of their long-running “Tempo Dreams” compilation series! The series sees established artists shine a light on their favourite producers and compile an album of all unreleased music from the emerging and underrated new talents. For Volume 5, the label welcomes the curation of LA producer Free The Robots.
The fifteen-track compilation features a wide-ranging mixture of artists with contributions from Mophono, Never Ending Echo, Kuromoji, The Breathing Effect, Cazal Organism, and TITLE, to name a few.
As with all previous volumes, the compiler has produced a track exclusively for the album, which Free the Robots delivers in the lo-fi psychedelic, bass-heavy, South East Asian vibes of ‘Nasi Goreng’.
You can stream Free The Robots track ‘Nasi Goreng’, an absolute gem of a tune, above.
