The third session (follow first one here and the second one here) of Black Rhino Artist in Residence brings together Dream Diggers and Șerb. A joint venture between the industrial sound of Dream Diggers and techno oriented producer Șerb has produced the song ”Simulacru de confort”.
Each residency aims to promote the process of collaboration, producing and recording a song. It interests us how artists work and negotiate musical ideas in order to reach a common goal. We are happy to present you the result of this session by introducing the song Simulacru de confort. You can listen the full track on Soundcloud and watch the documented video of this residency episode on YouTube. The video version also features interviews with the artists. You can purchase the track following our Bandcamp page.
Words about Dream Diggers:
Dream Diggers is a musical project that gravitates around sound exploration. Having launched two albums, the distinct highlight of the project is the atmosphere it creates, with a mix of low frequencies, syncopated rhythms and guitar tunes with dub echoes.
Released in 2015, "Fear is a lie" starts by telling a dystopian musical story, with warm sitar tunes which then grow and reach levels of militant stanzas. Peppered with many guest artists, "Fear is a lie" introduces Dream Diggers as a project open to the exploitation and manipulation of sound.
On the next release, "To dream is to see" (2016), the acoustic drums and the synth tunes add tension that complement the sound spectrum of Mihnea’s gravelly voice.
Every release sees the band's music in constant motion, experimenting with new frequencies.

In conversation with AlgiersAndrei Bucureci - Feb 01, 2019
Algiers is an experimental American band from Atlanta, Georgia, that labels it’s sound as dystopian soul. This is a transcontinental affair as the project’s members met and played together in the United States but the band was officially formed in London. Their African country name evokes the anti-colonial struggle, symbolizing a contested space where violence, racism, resistance and religion commingle.
