An exclusive new RSD album comprising remixes and edits of material from Laraaji's recent 'Sun Gong' and 'Bring On The Sun' LPs.

The Album connects the new age ambience of Laraaji's music to the kaleidoscopic cut-ups of the LA beat scene via e-works from the likes of Ras G, DNTEL, Mia Doi Todd and Dexter Story. Limited to 2,000 copies worldwide, housed in a printed kraft board sleeve with full colour printed inner. Praise for ‘Bring On The Sun’:  “Shimmers and glistens and throbs in all the right places.” - The Guardian.  “It’s minimalistic and trance-like, made for headphone listening and intimate spaces, but in no way does it fade into the background” – Pitchfork.  “Spontaneous yet cohesive; intimate yet spun-out, this is some of Laraaji’s finest work. He is finally getting the recognition for being the singular visionary that he is” - Future Music.  “A remarkable, transcendental journey into the clouds” - Electronic Sound.  “Some much needed waves of cosmic sunshine for our currently troubled times” - The Wire.  “An uplifting transcendence that’s simply a joy to hear” - Prog Magazine.  “A sprawling collection, encompassing everything from euphoric zither washes to jazzy beat poetry, without ever losing sight of its mood of sunny positivity” - Uncut  LP in printed kraft board sleeve with full colour printed inner sleeve and download card.  Limited to 500 copies for the UK and Ireland.
