“In our madness, our sorrow, our joy, our resilience, we escape into timeliness and multiple dimensions that allow us to transcend, beyond our words, our thoughts, our bodies. Transcending, that’s what we’ve been doing’.
Dark Beings, is about this experience. Dark Beings is a new album by the electronic duo LAL, Toronto’s mix of immigrant Barbadian, West-Indian, Straight cis-Blackman nerd meets Brampton/Bangladeshi Queer weirdo, aka Nic and Rose.
Ziibiwan is an electronic musician/producer with a no-holds-barred approach to production. Their beautiful and tension-filled soundscapes follow dense, calm, trap-inspired epics. Their ethereal sonics open into deeply hypnotic spaces where land, sky and deep sea meet. Ziibiwan is Anishnaabe from Wiikwemkoong, based in Tkaronto (Toronto).
