The Baltimore artist’s first album in five years finds the electronic producer keeping his kitchen sink electronic arrangements intact while finding inspiration in meditation and the use of Brian Eno’s Oblique Strategies cards.
Deacon also launched his album last Friday in Dublin, which Dave attended and discusses and you can see some of here.
