DVNT – Downbeaten Exploratory Interests Vol 1

A few weeks back we got an email at Darkfloor HQ asking where the first and second volumes of the sporadic series Downbeaten Exploratory Interests from DVNT were.

We’ve had Volume 3 on here since it was recorded in 2010 yet we never got around to publishing the those first two here on Darkfloor. And whilst they’ve existed on various message boards I felt it was about time we put these up here. So here’s the first one, recorded nearly 6 years ago sometime in November 2007.

Volume 2 followed a year later in 2008 (I’ll add that shortly). Volume 4 has as yet not happened. It’s somewhat overdue; quite the understatement 3 years. So let’s say we intend to get another recorded in the next few weeks.

Until then, here is the first in the series of downbeat, downtempo, ambient, drone and chilled mixtapes by DVNT.
