Congrats are in order for our own DJ Corey Grand for being featured in Scene Magazine!
Corey recently released the Cold Wax EP, and Scene reviewed it.
“Last year, I don’t know why, but I was having crazy dreams — like crazy, crazy dreams,” Grand says. “I would have a lot of sleep paralysis, you know, where you wake up and can’t move. And everybody has those here and there but last year it was super-intense. And, personally, I do believe them to be a little bit spiritual. So I was having these really intense dreams and I thought it’d be cool to try and take that, something that doesn’t physically exist, and try and take that energy and turn it into music.”
Though safe in sleep, the power of these dreams carried a physical presence to Grand, affecting his music. On the EP, amidst the overall nocturnal atmosphere, bolts of power come through on tracks like “Lucid Dream” and “Rain Dance.” These intense contrasts of energy came directly from the strange dreams.
“They’d just be so crazy,” Grand says. “In one I had, I fell asleep and woke right back up but dozed off again. This one, there felt like there was something right above me, just hovering. And whatever was above me just fell and I just woke up. It was really intense. So I just tried to take that energy and turn it into something.”
