vague mémoire, with the world of dreams, is Montreal based producer Byron's debut solo album. The album’s seven tracks blend warm basslines, distant reverberated guitars, mutated samples and field recordings, pulsing bass drums, hypnotic layers of percussion, melodic effected synthesizers, and sampled manipulated vocals over the course of a shape-shifting, psychedelic and emotive journey.
