Brooklyn based electronica artist Rookley releases his new single “Obsidian” today via Berlin label AIMEND, the slow-moving, brooding and eerie sounding track is a nod to fellow artists such as Burial and Machinedrum. The single deals with Rookleys experiences during the recent COVID-19 quarantine focusing on the theme of isolation and loneliness.

“Get used to talking with your ghosts and your memories and the pain will slide away leaving you in peace. At least that’s what happens to me. Isolation is powerful: you just need to choose which way you wanna go.”

DLJ and Galvanic have joined forces once again for another radically chill single, “Dead Man.” Their third collaboration since the release of “The End,” the duo shares an undeniable artistic chemistry. A marriage between lo-fi hip-hop beats and alternative vocals, “Dead Man” is a succeedingly earnest effort that bridges the gap between mental health and music. Relatable and deeply empathetic, DLJ and Galvanic surveys pessimism and pain through a soft-sounding resonance. As both artists continue building the foundation for their respective solo projects, their musical synchronicity works like a yin and yang. Listen to “Dead Man” today and expect more from DLJ and Galvanic soon.
