New Single & Video: The Lucid Dream – SX1000
The Lucid Dream return in April with the release of new single ‘SX1000’, the first taster from the recently completed 4th album. It’s a change of direction for the band but one we at Wipe Out Music absolutely love! The track is a slice of pure acid house, and will again see them acknowledged for venturing into pastures new, setting themselves apart from ‘genres’ and ‘scenes’.
Driven by fans raising £10,000 to help replace all equipment robbed after a Paris show in early 2017, a new album became the instant focus for The Lucid Dream in the summer of 2017.
‘SX1000’, as with the whole album, was penned over the summer by Mark Emmerson (vocals/guitar/synths), using only the classic Roland 303/808 synths, bass and vocals as tools for writing.
Inspiration for the writing formed via continuous listening to the Chicago to UK acid house works of 1986-1992, the focus predominantly on the groove. 5 months on from the writing sessions and The Lucid Dream have competed their 4th album in 5 years, this track a perfect indicator as to what awaits. A record made for the dancefloor.
‘SX1000’ is released on 6th April 2018 (ltd single-sided 12” vinyl), via Holy Are You Recordings.
