New Dreams is a soothing lullaby, a shot of hip hop adrenaline, a love letter to soul. It will simultaneously lift you up, hips swaying involuntarily, and slow you down into a quixotic stillness. Fifteen hypnotic songs layered with refined sample chops, live bass, keys, guitar, and original drum compositions - New Dreams paints a lush Fern-Gully soundscape that will transport you to a vibrant, magnetic realm. The songs are smooth and laid back, but with a soulful edge that comes with twenty-five years of hip hop behind it. This album, actively redefines the sound of Pacific NorthWest hip hop and is paving the way for future sounds. New Dreams was overseen and exclusively produced by one of Portland’s most prolific and under-the-radar producers and engineers, Sunday Grip.

LesMoss is the brainchild of Portland musicians iNDIGO and AED. New Dreams, their debut album, is released on It’s Future Time, an independent collective / label focused on writing songs and playing instruments. All of the label’s work is available on Bandcamp and Soundcloud.
What happens when two Portland producers and musicians join forces in the studio? A tidal wave of ambient, lush soundscapes that melt over you like a rogue wave at high tide. Equal parts hard-work and supreme funk, this powerhouse duo met and started collaborating in early 2016. Less than a year later they released New Dreams and are already hard at work collaborating on what’s to come. iNDIGO is Portland born, Milwaukie raised, and has been a producer for over ten years. This is iNDIGO’s public debut of what has previously been a passion project, shared exclusively with friends and family. AED is another Portland born gem and has been quietly writing, recording, and performing music for the last 15 years. He has toured nationally as a musician and emcee with the likes of Sapient and other similar artists. What else LesMoss has in store for us is unknown, but we do know it will be a laid back, tantalizing trip to the furthest points of the galaxy and back.
