Premiere: Dannie Fade – Badlands


As you made your way further and further out of the city the towering concrete buildings disappeared, soon to be replaced by desolate, dusty landscapes. Barren and unkept, this dark terrain housed no living specimens — there was no way of surviving in these dry and drab conditions. Though uninhabitable by humanity, with time these spaces became spectacles; marbled and eroded by mother nature.

Following the success of the first two instalments, Amsterdam-based collective, label and platform Sinchi make their return for round 3 of their Altered States compilation. Another far reaching and sonically diverse release, it features music from artists across four continents, including the Argentinian pairing of Altair & Sagan, Syrian duo Boschoco, US artist Mr. Tea and our pick from Lithuanian and returning Sinchi producer Dannie Fade, who tees up a dark, broody cut laced with a hypnotic vocal and crisp percussion.

All profits with go into their own Sinchi Foundation and the work they do in supporting indigenous communities worldwide.
