Selections: Bear Bones, Lay Low

Welcome back to Selections, a series of exclusive artist-curated Spotify playlists from those in the know.

Bear Bones, Lay Low is a cosmic experimentalist from Belgium-via-Venezuela. Having resided in the former for more than a decade he is an established member of a psychedelic underground, releasing his twinkle-toed patterns and hypnotic experiments via Kraak, Lullabies for Insomniacs, the Rush Hour affiliated No Label and many more.

His playlist attempts to reach into the many corners of BBLL’s influences, be that the gentle wash of repetitive synths, angular outskirts of arty noise groups, guitar-led rollers or the more propulsive, dancefloor elements of his sound. Much of this can be heard in his recent tape Ses Kondi, a shimmering collection of lightly menacing ambient released by Greek label, Orila.

Bear Bones, Lay Low is a 2019 artist of the SHAPE platform for innovative music and audiovisual art, co-funded by the “Creative Europe” programme of the European Union.
