Cosmic sound

Stephen Farris does some mind-bending work with samples and synths.  His tunes hover around the fringes of hip-hop and electronica, with some heavy psychedelic influences.  Back in 2010, he released VHS Vision under the Cosmic Sound moniker.  It is now just getting a proper release thanks to Crash Symbols.

The album crafts some stunning beats from obscure tape samples and twisted synths.  There is a raw, dreamlike quality to the sound that reaches its peak on songs like “Bear Auras” and “Wind Shine.”  The former has hints of Teebs but with some Kenlo Craqnuques and Com Truise thrown in.  Stream VHS Vision below and buy it here.
