A label called Memory No. 36 does not follow any trends of the modern music business. They like to do things in their own way and that means a pretty retro one. The releases they are putting out are sold on cassettes and their artworks resemble the ones from the times of the first graphic programs. One of the most recent positions in their catalogue is a debut self-titled EP from a guy called Sloww Lyfe who combines lo-fi synth sounds with his vocal and the most astonishing effect of this mix has derived in Missed Connections, a track that opens the whole thing. This song is surprisingly optimistic and at some moments it simply bursts out with a joyful tone which reminds me very much of M83 tracks. Could this be some synth-inspired Anthony Gonzalez’ embodiment from the ’80s?
