Hydra is the second release in a series of collaborations, this time a joint venture between the Dice and Maestro Allessandro Cortini.
The whole idea came about following the successful collaboration between RTD and Par Grindvik on their track 'Buried' at the end of last year. What started out as curiosity about what could happen if outside input was brought into the process, turned into the feeling that this could be further explored by maybe turning into a project and a series of releases.
We have reached out to different artists that we like and that we feel we have a kindred spirit with in our approach to music,and will put these tracks out individually throughout the year.
To make sure that all these different tracks with different collaborations dont feel too apart from each other we have asked London based Brazilian artist Fabio Almeida, (who was Malcolm's flatmate in London in the 90s) if we could use some of his work as artwork for the different covers. Fabio has picked out a set of images that have a common thread but also stand on their own, which is also the way Fabio sees his creative process.
For us this kind of sums up the project in a nice way. Together but apart.
