“its a soundtrack to someone saying goodbye to someone close to them, as they go off into the sky to be a space travelling sailor in the future. its about sadness but happiness too. in the future.”
King Deluxe have just dropped the latest installment of their ongoing 2999 project in which they ask electronic music producers to soundtrack their vision of the year 2999 and then get illustrators to interpret those tracks with their own ideas. Here Slugabed‘s bubbling, playful instrumental is accompanied by the art of Theo Prins.
