To start off the, compilation begins with Mass Digital’s “Lonely Souls”. This unique track floats along metallic, yet warm synth progressions that are sat atop a reverberated bassline. The airiness continues in pieces like Double Touch’s “Circles,” “Brightness”’ by Lazarusman and Rowee, “Once Upon A Time,” and the compilation’s closer, “Paraouna.”
All Day I Dream‘s Summer Sampler comes with a great deal of sentimentality and cinematic soundscapes as well. Death on the Balcony take a bittersweet direction with ‘The Source,’ while Squire and Dead-Tones hypnotize with twinkling, stuttered harmonies. Makebo’s ‘Just A Dream’ makes a statement with its sweeping string parts. Then of course, there’s the rising Flowers On Monday’s dewey, vocal and string-tinged “Don’t Give Up”. The memorable track has been a staple ID in the All Day I Stream sets. Ultimately, Summer Sampler offers a transcendent listening experience to those looking for a spot of sonic sunlight.
