GENERAL PROCEDURES AND HIS DARK INDIE DREAMWAVE STORIES

April 15, 2018

 

With the fitting title of Eloquent, Stockholm producer/designer Erik Ceder’s (General Procedures) first EP holds 4 tracks of pure instrumental.  Produced and mixed in Autumn of 2017, and released on March 1st, Eloquent feels like a hypnotic and melancholy morning walk through a dew-covered forest.

 

The stand-out focal point of the mixtape is the debut single, Stories, which blends sounds of indie, electronica, and a touch of shoegaze and an ability to pacify any disgruntled human being.  The biggest stand-out of the track is most certainly the seemingly infinite & complex mix of ambient layers that I lose myself to for the 5:03 track time.

 

You can find more of the minimalistic instrumentals from Eloquent on General Procedures’ SoundCloud.

This summertime guitar production mixes well with BabyJake's raspy singing, harmonies and a blackbear type of tone.  Also reminiscent of the Dominic Fike wave that's taking over, we're excited to hear more talente...
