The orchestral tropical bass music of Paper/Upper/Cuts, aka Portland Oregon’s David “Papi” Fimbres.
As an accomplished percussionist and multi-instrumentalist Fimbres wields an arc of pure infectious energy, and a rare cosmic control over the rhythmic and melodic spectrum. A deep exploration of Ancient and Future musics: The outcome falls somewhere between BLISSFUL DUBBED OUT CLUB MUSIC , RANCHERO TAQUERIA JAZZ, and the musings of a Mayan SUN RA composing for a TROPICAL ORCHESTRA of Synths, Flutes, Horns, and BEATS.
Paper/Upper/Cuts – “ILLA KILLA YELLOW SPACE” is offered in a special edition of 300 Marbled Yellow 12″ records, packaged in beautiful letter pressed jackets. Rounding off the 9 tracks of intricate rhythmic bangers is a futuristic dubby remix of “Glacial Palms” by Boomarm Nation’s own Gulls.
This release shines a bright light on West Coast musicality, and the free form energetic approach to art and life that we feel is essential to the evolution of our global boombox culture.
