Loco Dice has released his darkly eclectic album ‘Love Letters’, a 15-track embodiment of his diverse production range. Featuring the latest single ‘We’re Alive’, the most highly anticipated record of his recent sets.
Dice’s third studio album after ‘7 Dunham Place’ and ‘Underground Sound Suicide’ sees him reflecting on his musical influences and connections to Dusseldorf and beyond. The album is packed with the producer’s typically forceful tones, which blur the lines between house and techno. Utilising the bristling sounds and smooth drum beats, Dice’s ‘Love Letters’ album serves as an aural embodiment of the tones which make his sound so unique.
Throughout ‘Love Letters’, Dice uses his own vocals more frequently than on previous albums, which makes the production both trippier and more personal, representing past and present.
Addressing his listeners via special sleeve inside the 3×12″ vinyl album edition, Dice writes:
“It’s been a while since I’ve released anything in the form of an album. This time everything happened differently than my previous albums where I had the story or the concept first and where the music was my soundtrack to that story. This time the music came first – making and collecting music, having a good time in the studio without any pressure. It was not clear at all what to do with all this. To release it or not, if I have club 12” singles, or if I should just keep everything… but it felt good.
I looked around me and started to let only positive vibes into my surroundings and after I finished producing the 1st single “Roots”, everything came together. The missing link was there. It was clear to me that this is an album that belongs on my label, Desolat. The music on “Love Letters” is filled with the positive energy and love that I have received around the world. Every piece on this album is like a mini letter. A Love Letter.”
