Slow and low is the tempo, as a group of wise poets once said, but when youre talking about Philadelphia electronic trio Telepath, that's just the starting point. Incorporating a slew of international sounds through a deep dub filter we're pretty sure the only continent that doesn't have an influence is Antarctica, but we all know their music sucks anyway and keeping the emphasis on the funky and the spaced-out, Telepath manage to create a jet-setting sound that reflects the vast interconnectivity of our changing world. Part Afro-beat, part Sitar-beat and covered head to toe in gorgeous echoes and delay, the Telepath sound is not for close-minded, weak-willed conformists. No, these are tunes for epic sonic adventurers. Slow, chilled-out adventurers, but adventurers nonetheless.
