About a year ago, there were first rumours about a new Dimlite album titled Prismic Valuta Rising, but ultimately the project was cancelled. Luckily, some of the remainders will finally see the light of day via the “Prismic Tops EP”. Coming out on Now-Again, it includes the previously heard tracks Kalimba Lifeswamp and “Sun-sized Twinkles”, the latter was featured on the Essential Mix by Flying Lotus.
One of the new tracks is Dimlite’s take on Gap Mangione’s “Diana In The Autumn Wind“. The original version was prominently sampled by J Dilla for Slum Village and the Jaylib album. Dimlite’s version goes by the name of “Diana Won’t” and is offered for his label.
Watch out for the release of Primic Tops, which is set for release on March 23, 2010. In all good record shops!
