Boomkat Product Review:
Originally released in 2011 on cassette on the Magic+Dreams label.
Here's some words from Bass Clef:
"2010-2011, I’d quit my job to try and do music full time, it never really worked out but there were great highs and lows to make up for that. In a kind of chaotic freefall, I was in between labels, looking backwards and forwards at the same time. This record was made very quickly and was very personal, really just made for me and for a few close friends, some of whom I’d grown up with.
I feel very differently about sampling now than I did at that time, and am not sure I would make a record like this again. I wanted to use very familiar sounds, sounds that had been all over the records I loved as a teenager, and along with the vocal samples, to tell a story. Of the sense of freedom that dance music had brought to me, and of the mental costs of living that kind of life, and of the beautiful joys too.
Some of my most vivid listening experiences in my late teens were always walking home coming down after parties or nights out, so Inner Space was intended as a reverse time capsule - a retrospective soundtrack for those early mornings. It was dedicated to the tunes, DJ’s, soundsystems, noisy neighbours and pirate stations that inspired me and repeatedly turned my head inside out"
