Nach der Total-Katastrophe als der Band in Paris 2017 ihr gesamtes Equipment gestohlen worden ist und die Fans mehr als 10.000 Euro aufgebracht haben um es zu ersetzen, lag der Focus von THE LUCID DREAM nun voll auf dem neuen Album, ihrem vierten. ‘Actualisation’ ist stark von Acid, Kraut und "Kosmische Musik" beeinflusst.
The Lucid Dream return in October with the release of their 4th album, ‘Actualisation’. Driven by fans raising £10,000 to help replace all equipment robbed after a Paris show in early 2017, a new album became the instant focus in the summer of 2017 for a rejuvenated The Lucid Dream.
‘Actualisation’ is soaked in the influence of acid house, amalgamated with dub and kosmische. It will again see them acknowledged for venturing into pastures new, setting themselves apart from ‘genres’, ‘scenes’ or what any other act are currently doing.
The album was penned over the summer of 2017 by Mark Emmerson (vocals/guitar/synths), using only the classic Roland 303/808 synths, bass and vocals as tools for writing. Inspiration for the writing was formed via continuous listening to the Chicago to UK acid house works of 1986-1992, the focus predominantly on the groove.
Several months on from those writing sessions and The Lucid Dream have completed their 4th album in 5 years. A record made for the dancefloor.
