Smokey Emery is the alter-ego of Austin sound artist Daniel Hipólito, whose live manipulation of multiple vintage tape-players (with tapes containing both found material and his own musical creations) is incredibly physical (reminding me of turntable artists such as Christian Marclay) and produces amazing multi-layered drone compositions that are uniquely textured as they are tape-derived…I first saw Daniel perform at the Slow Pump dronefest last March and was blown away by the originality of his conception and the elastic drone harmonies he was able to produce in performance. Of course, there needed to be a Smokey Emery release on KSE, and Daniel was kind enough to go into the studio and produce this two-track twenty-minute gem that captures everything that is unique about the Smokey Emery experience. Daniel also gave a mesmerizing performance at the KSE Psychedelic Disaster Whirl and was one of the best performers at the seamless-drone evening ‘Continuance: Another Night of Sustained Tones’ in September. It’s an honor to present his work to the world outside Austin…and to remind those in Austin of what a force-of-nature we have here.
