Boomkat Product Review:
Private press-style Kosmische explorations from "21st century face melter" Daniel D. Smith. 'Dark Days' is his vinyl debut for Belgium's Aguirre imprint, preparing us for "the Technocalyps" with four long tracks recorded entirely on a Nord Lead 2 in June 2010. Parallels can be drawn between his mesmerizing style and that of Emeralds' John Elliott, certain strains of the OPN sound or Caboladies, as he clearly operates in that fantasy synth zone, but there's an accent to his melodies and a blissfully glazed disposition all of his own making. White label vinyl comes housed in hand-stamped sleeve.
