This woozy track from Dublin rapper Emzee A is suitably matched to the title of the song – being caught between a world imagined and the real. It was inspired by Emzee’s friend who experienced sleep paralysis and insomnia.
That interest lead Emzee to the book Dreams by Carl Gustav Jung and the production by Omito Beats has some of that Clams Casino/ kush atmosphere as a result. The video was brought to live by Bob Gallagher.
