Desert Sand Feels Warm At Night – Slushwave Artist
Initially I had never heard of anything like Desert Sand Feels Warm At Night (Desert Sand) in the vaporwave scene, yet I was seeing his cassette, name and music passed around throughout the community.
So when I started listening to his music, the long 20 minute tracks, the slow ambient feel and the mysterious long artist name caught my attention in more than one ways. I knew I had to interview him to find out more of this force of musical nature and learn more about how he became so big.
Turns out not even he knows how he was able to become such a house hold name in the scene but he does have tips for what worked for him in the early days of being a vaporwave artists. We talked about how he found his sound, when to contact labels and how to improve when you’re not getting any listens. Can’t you believe at one point he barely had 1 listen in the beginning?
Find out all of this and more in the above Youtube video.
