Frivolous Previews ‘Lost & Forgotten’
Some people are just frivolous by their very nature. One look at the apartment of our editor sees a space awash with unnecessary impulse buys that the likes of ebay have made so painfully easy for the more spontaneous to acquire. Money wasted on jukeboxes, fruit machines and table football aside we still think frivolity can be a good thing as evidenced by the work of Canadian beatsmith Frivolous and his illustrious back catalogue.
Now the the producer has revealed that for all the music Frivolous has shared with us over the years, like any artist he has a wealth of unreleased gems that have lain dormant in dusty corners of hard drives with only their neighboring sketches, doodles and unfinished jams for company. Good news then for those eager to unearth every sound emitted by the man, as a new compilation on Lessizmore lets slip some hidden gems that date right back to the early days of Daniel Gardner’s project.
Amidst a much welcome return to his motherland in rural British Columbia, Canada, Frivolous has now found time to pore over his staggering archive of productions to provide extra insight to his evolution as an artist. From tracks born in the midst of a relentless gigging schedule supporting his last album Meteorology to intro tracks for pop albums that may never see the light of day, Lost and Forgotten addresses the fear of every music lover that their most celebrated artists may be sat on reams of life-affirming material that shall, for whatever reason, remain private.
Set to drop later this month fans can get a sneak preview of the upcoming release with a preview provided by the man himself below:
