Raaja Bones – Black Dreams

Nestled within the fields and forests surrounding Oslo you’ll find Raaja Bones. There, in Raaja’s secluded studio surrounded by vintage synthesisers, modular equipment, samplers and drum machines, is where he makes music that owes as much to his personal tastes as it does his identity and upbringing. ‘Black Dreams’, is where this venn diagram of influences overlap, from the shimmer of e-funk and the effortless grooves of soul to the unashamed, heartfelt honesty of 80s pop.

‘Black Dreams’, marks the final chapter of Raaja’s three record storyline. It’s honest, at times reflective, an album recorded through times of despair and of great love that forced Raaja to reflect on his past and, ultimately, find his groove in the present over ten tracks.
