Good morning. We’re off on Monday.
It’s Friday so we’re listening to something more upbeat. Today we’re listening to Space Ghost, an electronic musician based in Oakland. He started putting out records in 2018 and has delivered one LP a year, blending New Age sounds with lofi house. His influences really range: Lone, Oneohtrix Point Never, MF Doom, Flying Lotus, Soichi Terada, and more.1 We’re first playing his 2019 record Aquarium Nightclub, whichrecently put back on our radar.2 We’re also playing the more subdued Private Paradise from last year. As for his name, Space Ghost told Mixmag, “I wish I had maybe chosen a different name, but I was like 17 and then I think the reason I chose Space Ghost was just because I was trying to make like an MF DOOM style, hip hop beat, and I was sampling the Space Ghost theme song or something.”
Have a good weekend.
