Prayer: The ‘Monday Is Okay’ Mix
Black Acre has become a stable home for the musical output of the producer who travels under the name of PRAYER. The producer has established himself as a singular thinker and his music reflects a distinct narrative which allows him to experiment with the abstract, the ethereal and the futuristic. His music sits somewhere between the heady drive of rave and the cut and screwed soundscapes associated with the most dream like elements of ambient music and beyond. It's beautiful yet menacing, elegant yet robust at times. In the coming months he is set to return with more fresh new music and we would hotly anticipate his rise across the next little while. One to watch.
