Funky beatmaker and cratedigger extraordinaire Daily Bread outdid himself once again. His latest LP Invisible Cinema, out now on his own imprint Philos Records, is a masterpiece chock-full of funky basslines, groovy melodies, and top-notch percussion. Fans revere Daily Bread for his sampling ability, as his tracks are mainly comprised of samples from numerous old records. Collaborations with Late Night Radio and Artifaktsround out this masterful work. Daily Bread announced his debut headlining tour alongside the LP. The tour spans over twenty-five stops across North America and features Duffrey, K+Lab, and select dates from Tripp St., all outstanding producers in their own right.
A Ticket To The Cinema
Invisible Cinema is a sonic excursion spanning Daily Bread’s range. This album features mellow, thoughtful works like “Look Up At The Sky” and festival-ready bangers like “Snickerz.” It’s a fantastic representation of Daily Bread’s sonic palette. First up on the record is “Blindfold Yourself” with Late Night Radio, featuring soulful melodies alongside dirty distorted basslines. This track is a grandiose introduction to the next phase of Daily Bread. Next, “Street Treasure” reels in the energy and reminds listeners to be grounded in the moment and open up their hearts. The next record, “Applying Pressure,” masterfully blends the emotional elements and dirty, funky basslines from the previous two songs, and features Jonah Cruzz.
“Weary Days” is an introspective, mellow beat that longs for emotional release from long days on the road as a musician. While being one of the more downtempo tracks on the album, the beat is still infectious. The album’s breakout single, “Back To The Moon,” uses the moon as a symbol for the perpetuity of time. This track has one of the record’s grooviest basslines. “Moon Slips Away” is an excellent juxtaposition to “Back To The Moon,” as a funky bassline gives way to a mellow beat, signifying the return of the chaotic daytime.
“Neighbors,” with Artifakts, is a funky, get-down track with chopped-up rap vocal samples. “Storm Cloud Rising,” with Late Night Radio, featuring ATL-based rapper 4-IZE, is a delectable hip-hop and bass cut with superb backing vocals. “Close Encounters” chronicles making contact with an extraterrestrial entity, utilizing a significant laser sample throughout. The funky bass smasher “Snickerz” is up next, bringing a fervent tempo that tickles the ears.
The next track, “Empty Like Sky” is a mellow contemplative masterpiece with a groovy breakdown in the middle. “Look Up At The Stars” made waves at Sonic Bloom Festival, in 2022, during Daily Bread’s Bread & Breakfast set. Finally, “Set To The Sky” wraps up the album in a beautiful bow, employing lush textures that give this track an incredible depth.
On The Road
Along with his debut headlining tour, Daily Bread will also appear at Electric Forest, Red Rocks with Mersiv, and Secret Dreams among many other festivals throughout the year. He’s already performed at Okeechobee and Envision this year and is showing no signs of slowing down soon. We cannot wait for what’s to come from the car-obsessed Atlanta producer, but we’re just grateful to be along for the ride.
