Analog Players Society is proud to announce “Chase,” the first single and music video from Soundtrack for a Nonexistent Film, to be released on October 30. This record is an instrumental, cinematic, set sampled from the original recording session that birthed TILTED.
Out November 13 (Nov. 6 on Bandcamp), Soundtrack for a Nonexistent Film is a nod to the classic, sample-heavy production of Hip-Hop’s Golden Age. Pre-save/pre-order the album at https://ropeadope.lnk.to/Chase.
Producers Amon Drum and Ben Rubin (aka Benny Cha Cha) went back to the lab to slice and dice the original jazz session, which featured jazz luminaries tenor saxophonist Donny McCaslin (David Bowie’s last bandleader on Blackstar), pianist Orrin Evans (the Bad Plus), and bassist Dezron Douglas (Ravi Coltrane) and drummer Eric McPherson (Fred Hersch Trio). The resulting songs reflect the producers’ own takes on this moment. Amon expresses, “Soundtrack” is an emotional, sample-based expression of right fucking now.”
“Chase,” is accompanied by a stunning music video directed, shot, and edited by Jude Goergen and produced by Mona Kayhan and Amon Drum. The concept revolves around New York City and the resilience and drive of its people, even when running from the many things one can fear. Amon explains, “…That’s NYC. We can keep running forever. It might be ridiculous, scary, and we might get tired, but don’t even try to outrun us.”
