EM19. Sees ​Gavsborg not by himself but with the company of his ancestors (​most of whose names are unknown to him at this time​) his experiences, his loved ones, his vices, devices and perpetual fondness for Jamaican experimental music. This is his safe space, his own canopy of 90bpm give or take 10bpm each side.

**sittin in the park in the dark & a ​duppy​ from the woods jumps out and tries to haunt u u know u got to go but u know if you go
the ​duppy​ still going haunt you**

Jamaican Drum Machine is not any specific machine or instrument but more about a feeling that Jamaica delivers to him.

**start, chop and stop (lifetime reps) .......similar to digging for samples**

A country that in his experience takes so much and gives so little in comparison, but the little that is given for him is more than sufficient to be inspired by for a lifetime and potentially lifetime(s) .......(​hope to confirm the plurality at another time​).

The cover was all hand drawn by Gavsborg ‘on his section of the couch’.

Mastered by ​Nik Sinna​, ​Hidden Sounds​, ​Manchester UK​, ‘​Jamaican Drum Machine​’ will be available digitally from August, 28 2020 ​and is distributed by Zinc Beats.

P.s. the stanza quoted earlier is heard at the end of track 3. Written by ​Gavsborg and recited by the queen of the
cool kids club herself, ‘​Shanique Marie​’.

***For the ones who don’t know.......*Duppy means Ghost
