Pan American: In Daylight Dub
Mark Nelson harks back to the luxurious dub refractions of his earliest Pan•American material on this beautiful suite of productions recorded at the turn of the century. If you know that first Pan•American album you’ll already have an idea of what to expect here: deepest midnight dub of the most evocative order, a huge recommendation if you’re into anything from Rhythm & Sound to Seefeel.
That first Pan•American album remains a totally singular and highly influential expression of a sound, layering jazz keys and windswept atmospheres around the most softly-piercing subs imaginable. As opposed to pretty much all the dub-adjacent electro music of the era, there was no glitch to be found within the Pan•American matrix – it was all about atmosphere and space rather than texture and process boomkat
