«When the particles of dust along a curve start floating, they carry miniscule pieces of metal, plastic, and glass. As these particles float, they reflect natural light to become visible to the human eye. In a similar way, A Sankip Hummad lifts tiny glitches, clicks, and bleeps out of their technological environment to infuse them with a special type of light and compelling traces of human memory; memories of a utopia that never existed or perhaps nostalgia for something we do not know yet. In any way, the clever compositions of Desmond Hollins continue to captivate the attentive ear with slick grooves capable of taking different dimensions within time and space.

If "Le Sac" = The Bag, and "De Sonido" = of Sound, then imagine a bag that transforms the objects it is carrying into sound. Everything you put inside loses its material form to become sonic messages that inspire you to move slowly forward. As you walk balancing this bag, a metric level of pulses is heard and consequently your steps become rhythmic. Soon, "Le Sac De Sonido" takes you into a journey through landscapes where everyone greets you with meditative gestures. In this trip you are allowed to use the bag to collect your "objects" and transform them into vibrations, or simply just go with the flow.

A Sankip Hummad understands how to guide us into our psycho-geography with groovy aural maps that take cartography into a whole different level. Enjoy the trip.» - Sebastian Alvarez

Reviews:

«I took the afternoon off today for some much required down time, work being pretty hectic as usual. The weather’s surprisingly nice and I couldn’t have asked for a better sofa soundtrack than this as the sun poured in.
Le Sac De Sonido (or ‘The Bag Of Sound’) is the work of Desmond Hollins, you can download the entire release for free at Portuguese net-label Test Tube. This is finding it’s place in my mind somewhere between titles like Gramm’s Personal Rock and Dan Abrams various releases as Shuttle358. If you’re looking to power down for a while and do a little mental housekeeping, this may well sort you out.
Hollins continues to impress. With his three S&S collections of hip hop makeovers (as Katrah Quey) alongside a handful of other releases including the Ceptual project debuted by Miasmah in 2006, this guy is definitely worth keeping an eye on.»
