Radius - Sleeping Wide Awake


No doubt our society is complacent. Is Hollywood’s never ceasing fascination with the walking dead any wonder? Radius’ Sleeping Wide Awake is a call from a reflecting awareness – wake up. In his own words: “people are zombies ”sleepwalking” and so much going on around them is here to awaken them, they just need a change of diet. Mentally, physically and spiritually I feel music is that cure.”. In essence this is what hip hop has been about since the get (despite what clear-channel and mainstream “you are getting sleeeeeeepy” thrust repeats would have the world believe). Knock Knock. Who’s there? Beats with swagger before “swag” became yet another example of how late pop exploitation decides what’s cool. Radius’ tracks capture a certain meditative quality that is neither ambient or new-agey, a something-a-ruther often missed in music of technological mediums. Chopped and pitched samples, vinyl static, classic breaks, steps without quantization, piercing envelopes, – all played and recorded in real time. Raw. Simply put, Sleeping Wide Awake is a hip hop instrumental album from a true head for true heads and beyond. Enjoy.

  6. An Interview with Ramon Etc. a.k.a. RADIUS Says:

    [...] Radius has been creating music and performing since 2001. His debut full length album ‘Neighborhood Suicide’ was released in 2008 on The Secret Life of Sound label. The album was well received starting a buzz from Chicago to Los Angeles, where he later spent much time strolling the aisles of Amoeba Records.  This warm welcome led to the follow up releases of the ‘Scatterbrain Tapes Vol.1′ and ‘Etc’ albums on the Plustapes (Chicago) and Grittygoat (NYC) labels. Using a combination of his MPC and vinyl he engages Jazz, House, and Hip-Hop to ‘outer space’.  His live performances became an extension of the music, experimenting and often improvising with a record player, kaoss pad and his beats to create a live electronic experience. You can also find his latest album, ‘Sleeping Wide Awake’, released earlier this year here. [...]

    That’s what I’m going to be using for a long time now.
    Online beat makers can also be extremely bad news if you have a slow internet connection.
    Try to find beats for sale or Soundclick rap beats can be extremely
    difficult if you do not know what you’re doing.
