[ARC-054] valu4CFB – afm

valu4CFB - afmSurprise! Today we have a debut release from valu4CFB. This comes only one week after our fantastic previous release by LBN667, and in another 7 days we’ll have ARC-055 ready for you. My goodness, what a month.

This album throws analog synths and drum machines together with a dash of ambient influences and lo-fi glitch. The result is sadness, triumphant melodies, and unnerving vibes in a big range of moods. There’s a heavy influence here from dreams, depression, and spacing out.

valu4CFB used to be a hacker that sleepwalked in the kitchen speaking in hexadecimal to his mother at ten years of age. Over the years, he has lost focus and no longer feels at home. He’s self isolated, obsessing over 8-bit video games, Japanese pro wrestling, and dead netlabel scenes.
