THE DELAY IN THE UNIVERSAL LOOPIT

At the beginning of this millennium, nearly any album which mixed acoustic music with electronic music, recorded in total solitude with a vague ambition to leave the four walls of the studio was labeled as “bedroom pop”. Key ingredients: keyboards, some guitar at times, above all a series of self-produced beats. Italian producer Populous started like this. Fast forward to today: after bedroom pop, here it comes bedroom dope. Main representative being The Delay In The Universal Loop. Less than a handful of records and EPs, a couple of tours in the United States and several in Europe, the man succeeds in the otherwise impossible challenge of controlling entropy: plays everything, improvises everything, sings, samples, overdubs, acoustic electric or acoustic same difference, sound spectrum between lounge and grunge and everything in between. If Syd Barrett was born in Benevento in the 90s, he would probably sound like this today.
