‘DREAM is about, well, dreaming… and ultimately about people you may miss for whatever reason.’

Producer MODEL 86’s new single ‘DREAM’ is a masterclass in ambient electronica, its chopped vocals floating over hypnotic synths and a pulsating bassline. A rich array of influences ranging from Nils Frahm to Jamie XX to Ryoji Ikeda contribute to a fluid, shapeshifting sound that has won him praise from tastemakers at BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra, 6music, XLR8R, NME and Nowness. ‘DREAM’ is the first taste of MODEL 86’s upcoming release: It’s a Post-Sex, Post-Nation, Post-Genre, Same Day Delivery Post Future and I Love It, due in 2020. The enigmatic producer had this to say on it:

“The track has multiple different tempos that create this push and pull in places, it speeds up and slows right down. To me it’s got this hip-hop vibe, mixed with this synth wave vibe mixed with a future bass thing, then there’s the string quartet and vocoder hook, now I don’t know what genre it is. You?” MODEL 86

The pseudonym MODEL 86 is androgynous, the music is fluid and unpredictable. It’s intended to reinforce that your birth place, sex and class are a fluke.
