PANEYE “Remote Summer Clouds” C55 (Illuminated Paths)



There are a bunch of rad synth riffs and dreamy sequences and washes and ghosts of awesome neon eighties dance parties and then half of them GET RUINED BY THE FUCKING 4/4 TECHNO DOWNBEAT. I’m going to go and set this tape on fire now and pay hard earned cash for it later, once somebody finds a way to make noise cancellation software that buries the technobeat. Also, if you are someone who is considering sending Cassette Gods your techno tape, please consider, for the both of us, requesting that I not get your tape. Plenty of people who are not allergic to techno will likely go ga-ga over this, as the production is great and the layers are masterfully arranged.

  2. This tape is wicked good! What a lazy fucking review. Yeesh. Pass it off to someone else next time or don't bother.

  3. Nice to see Paneye here! If you prefer ambient, beatless stuff his previous (and best IMO) album Lost in a Dark Aquarium might be more your thing. I agree with Jacob, the beats on some of these tracks don't do it for me, but the synths are lush and beautiful. I also like the weird female vocals

  4. I just checked the bandcamp link. Techno? sounds more IDM to me. Canny imagine getting on the beans and raving to it. This is a tape for my bong (v_V)

  6. Curious - this post seems to be getting a strong reaction. I downloaded this and gave it a start-to-finish listen. Enjoyed it immensely each to their own I guess
