BILO 503 AND BSD.U VINYL ON BLACK FRIDAY

By Robyn Raymond

BILO 503 AND BSD.U VINYL ON BLACK FRIDAY

Hey Analogues!

Very excited to announce two very long awaited records, “Bayybe” the newest album from BILO 503 and for the first time ever [BSD.U] “Lighter” finally on wax! Pre-orders will be available on Black Friday, November 24th. Mark your calendars, and don’t sleep on these!

BILO 503’s fourth and final release with Inner Ocean, Bayybe is this Berlin based producer’s most personal and gorgeous work yet.  Bilo is known for his truly lofi sound; stripped down beats and warbly melodies drenched in tape saturation.  Retaining his fundamental sound, Bayybe is more indie than hip hop and by indie we mean gritty dream surf wave.  Synthesizer, guitar, drums and 4track tape; the simple tools needed to lay down one of the most honest farewell albums we’ve heard, truly a Bilo 503 masterpiece.

[BSD.U], fellow Canadian  and prolific lofi producer from Vancouver Island, has blessed us with many very solid albums over the years.  His very first release Lighter has had a profound and lasting effect on the lofi community since it’s first release back in 2014.   Now for the first time we are presenting this lofi classic as a Special Edition 10” White Vinyl, a much needed addition to the record collection.
