about

An EP of lo-fi instrumental beats produced by Owen Ashworth of Advance Base. Instrumentals #1 compiles six beats recorded for Serengeti's Family & Friends album on Anticon Records, plus vocal-free versions of two non-album tracks ("Cubes" & "Kenny Vs. Spring"). Distorted & off-kilter drum machine rhythms, soul claps, icy analogue synth melodies, warbled vocal samples & ghostly orchestral sounds get drowned in reverb & tape hiss & the results are beautiful. Moody & dreamy, but more beat-oriented than A Shut-In's Prayer. 8 tracks, 23 minutes.

Track titles indicate the names of the original instrumental demos, followed by the officially-released vocal versions.
