IR: SoCal – April 29th, L.A. Riot [The LAPD Tapes]
Today’s session is basically one continuous experimental half-hour long electronica track, crafted by someone not from the region, and with material apparently taken from the Los Angeles Police Department during the April 29th ‘spawned’ L.A. Riots back in 1992.
The performer is actually from the Netherlands and goes by the moniker Zero V. This track is called LA Riot [THE LAPD Tapes], a delicious thirty minute epic produced by the Notorious Twins. This soundscape captures the listener in its droning rhythms, bringing back a sense of urgency and recollection of the vivid local imagery broadcast around the world sixteen years ago to the date.
So open the windows, let the heat flood in, breathe in that smoky L.A. air, throw on your headphones, and take a recollective trip back for better or for worse…
