We already shared the first single, ‘California Dreamin’‘, on our site before, but the long-awaited new album by DJ Cam is finally out now! You can stream it in its entirety here.
With ‘Seven’, DJ Cam serves up his most personal album since the acclaimed album ‘Substances‘. Inspired as ever by the original jazz and hip hop influences that helped him become one of the founders of the trip-hop scene back in 1995, this new album is also full of exciting new musical and visual influences.
‘Seven’ has touches of well-crafted pop and folk (‘Swim’, with vocals by Stateless’ Chris James and a video directed by Sonia Sieff, reminds one of Radiohead, one of the album’s major influences), hints of old school electronica (‘Dreamcatcher’), and cinematic ambient tracks that invite you to dream (‘Seven’, ‘California Dreamin”).
Written in Paris and Los Angeles, ‘Seven’ is an album whose enveloping, melancholic tone and wide-open soundscapes are supposed to help make your mind wander. Listen to the full album here, and don’t forget to buy it if you like it:
