Black Dolphin is the debut release from Dim Past, a new techno project from Miami, Florida. Mixed and Mastered by Adames in 3-D VHS studios, this 30-minute, four-song EP is the primogenial transmission from a key player in South Florida’s presently-festering Negative Rave clique. Occult Circuitry (no computers) were utilized exclusively in the composing and recording of this inaugural Black Acid communique.
Dim Past emerges from the self-immolated ruins of extreme and purposefully disfigured rock music. Subsequently, the marshland elec-tropi-cult avatar circumvents traditional beat-oriented soundscapes with a set of tools distinct from those historically employed by classic Techno, House, and Disco. The end result is fresh electronica that comfortably and confidently pairs two of contemporary EDM's most prominent sub-movements: primal, post-punk, high-contrast headhunter rhythm, and nostalgic-but-forward-looking synthesizer revivalism.

"With Black Dolphin, Dim Past has started a reclaiming of the genre from plastic automation and soulless programming, employing “occult circuitries” and an obsessive mastery to rescue you from your docile, optimistic worldview. It’ll also force you to dance as you reckon with your pitiful, inevitable drowning." -Dazed & Confused
