$.99 Dreams, Spei Res
DRAFT D017 / LP / Edition of 400

DRAFT is pleased to announce its second LP release from underground jazz-synth duo $.99 Dreams. Spei Res, roughly translated from Latin as “thing of hope”, plays like a suite of soundtrack miniatures driven by virtuosic drumming and synthesizer textures. Seemingly oblivious to musical trends, Adam Diller (synth, sax, production) and Matt Crane (drums) have crafted a distinctive sound that unifies electronic music, jazz improvisation, and hip hop production techniques. Spei Res finds them further down this path, exploiting the recording studio to build and modify improvisations into a sonically dense and kinetic record. Connected to the likes of Sun Ra, Varèse, and J Dilla, $.99 Dreams craft a highly personalized music. The album feels both ancient and new, building a language out of pummeling rhythms, dynamic keyboard passages, and sculpted atmospheres, enhanced by Diller’s articulate production work. Spei Res is a colossal record, containing a life music that is self-aware, revelatory and knows what it’s up against.
