We are excited to bring you the video for the third single to be taken from The Lucid Dream’s brilliant new album Actualisation, out 19th October, and is soaked in the influence of acid house, amalgamated with dub and kosmische.
Mark Emmerson from the band says “The video was filmed by our friend, Dan Hewitson (Freakbeat Films) in Liverpool. He suggested we wear boiler suits, which to us made perfect sense given the progression in our direction towards more dance-related sounds. The track was the first one written and recorded for the new album, and was hugely influenced by acid house, alongside the early Heavenly Recordings works.
It’s an amalgamation of the influences of house, dub, hip-hop (certainly in the drums and 808), and is the second instalment of a two-part opus. Somehow, we’ve managed to streamline it into a 2.5 minute pop song (in the right manner).”
