Rhyme flight, deck the sixth ( the time, flying … the light years, travelling ) … casting our sights and senses upon the silhouetted vales of a versichromatic soundboard’s signature repertoire — and so, with that, and without further ado, let’s sift said sampling : godspeed, enjoi

“Record,” Artist (Vintage)Taste Notes
“Black Knight,” Mark Dee (2020)Synthwave base with italo-disco sensibility, V12 vantage echoing outrun atmosphere … cavaliere notturno
“The Valley,” Duran Duran (2007)New Romantic base with poperatic sensibility, promethean vantage echoing hollywood babylon atmosphere … mulholland canyonero

“Painting Skies,” Cold Blue (2020)Ambient base with techno sensibility, firmament fresco vantage echoing dusk before tundra daybreak atmosphere … ambianzure
[ On the Whole ] “Valley Cast,” ibid.
