Je Suis Le Petit Chevalier’s Dark Morse is an exclusive lost tape inspired by the short story The Angel Esmeralda written by Don Delillo. Following two LPs and bunch of tapes dropped last year, this new output is her most whispering beat orientated material to date.
Dark Morse is a tabu hidden at the end of a lost road in the suburbs, a pile of crawling concrete, burried under sub basses, broken rhythms, drunken lullubies for blind dogs.
Je Suis Le Petit Chevalier whispers here holy encounters with dark shades moving at dawn, hoarse prayers, slum saints and never growing ghosts children….
