US-based Santiago Leyba makes it for the sixth installment in our ongoing tape series. Picturing delusional struggles and states of duress, Rooms was recorded in complete social isolation between the four walls of his New York basement and comes ahead of his vinyl debut to be released next month. Lost in a perception of changed reality and dead-end labyrinths of thoughts, Leyba seeks to highlight the claustrophobia and paranoia that contemporary life inspires. How it takes a toll on us all. The slowness and distressing nature of these productions makes it incredibly uncomfortable but weirdly familiar too. It feels like it is moving through places we have all been before. Cycles of shame, guilt, financial trouble, fragmented relationships and splitting persona to name a few. Paranoid impressions of modern life that manifests as music, excruciating decay, with an uncanny resemblance to contemporary techno and electronic oddities.
