Release Date: 12th May 2017
Tale Of Ordinary Madness
The Great Escape
Lee Van Dowski makes his debut on the mighty Crosstown Rebels with three delectably dark soundscapes in the Tale Of Ordinary Madness EP.
The talented producer delivered a stunning EP for Crosstown sub-label Rebellion back in 2015 and this follow up exceeds all expectations. The title track is based on a text from Charles Bukowski’s My Madness.
Opening with brooding intensity it evolves with haunting synths and subtle acid laced over a pitched down male vocal. On the flip The Great Escape and Rapidplatz follow suit advancing with dark, hypnotic layers.
“When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies? Perhaps to be too practical is madness. To surrender dreams — this may be madness. Too much sanity may be madness — and maddest of all: to see life as it is, and not as it should be!”
French born, Zurich based Lee Van Dowski has toured the world many times over, as party of Luciano’s Vagabundos troupe and as an individual artist.
His impressive discography covers labels including Wagon Repair, Cocoon, Suara, Soma, Rekids, BPitch Control,Ilian Tape, and Mobilee. This year shows no signs of slowing down with a release for Nicole Moudaber’s MOOD followed by this heavy-weight release for Crosstown Rebels.
