Montserrat House Music and Eric Hilton, one-half of the legendary downtempo electronic act Thievery Corporation, are excited to announce the release of Lost Dialect, Hilton's brand new solo album he describes as "a classic, experimental trip-hop record."
On this stunning new LP, Hilton speaks in his mother tongue, the 12-bit vernacular of trip-hop, a genre he helped bring to life as a co-founder of Thievery. Across ten expansive tracks, the artist/producer uses old-school skills to craft new school chill in a genre that is currently enjoying a resurgence - but for Hilton at least, trip-hop never really went away.
Lost Dialect has a looser, more vintage '70s sonic palette than Hilton's recent solo work. 1970's jazz and Afrofuturism are part of the language of this album, most notably on the standout track "Ra", where soulful horn flourishes echo in a shimmering sonic landscape.
