Hourglass Sea – Live From The Crematorium

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 1, 2013 by dk

Hourglass Sea - Live From The CrematoriumHourglass Sea aka Dean Bentley is a multi-instrumentalist with a bold maximalist approach to emotive electronics. Elegantly posturing from genre to genre, but making no apology for crow-barred samples or soaring sun-kissed guitar-licks, Bentley demonstrates a knack for complex rhythms and melody.
Emerging from Lidget Green – an otherwise ignored enclave of Bradford scarred by the demise of industry and robbed of its working-class pulse thanks to ‘progress’, his debut album reflects the landscape of the producer’s formative years. The major influence of growing up across the street from a cemetery and smoking crematorium is embedded deeply within the entire album and is also the point of origin for the album’s title.
The talented producer has just dropped his latest track, ‘Richard III’ as a free download.
