about

"Freedom to Talk, offers re-contextualised information drawn from mainstream media, conspiracy theories and academia. It is inevitably a, sort of, faux-political ideology that seeks to win votes by any means necessary." -Acidslop

Mandarin Dreams are excited to present Freedom To Talk, a collection of bedroom demos by Melbourne duo, Acidslop. Comprised of DJ/Producer A.kid and self-taught multi-instrumentalist Alien, they are the founders of Raw Humps, an 11-piece psychedelic band and cult figure in Melbourne’s underground soul scene.

Leading up to Raw Hump’s forthcoming debut album Sugar Slave Babies, Acidslop provide a preface with Freedom To Talk. Initially not intended for release this collection of demos was used as the basis for Raw Humps live shows. Not unlike the many mixtapes and demos they’ve made over the years, these lo-fi reductions were born of late nights, lost takes and a wandering mind. The songs feature fellow musicians from Raw Humps and Mandarin Dreams, Ikey, Silent Jay, Hoose and Sam Albert Morrison.

This record was created on stole land of the Wurundjeri people. We acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land, who today still continue to survive genocide.

Track Name: Sugar Slave Babies (Prelude)
My European love to kill and eat
My African never accept defeat
They’re looking to dilute, what little I got left
Coz this purity poses them a threat
Sugar Slave Babies
What you good for
Sugar Slave Babies
Forever stay poor
Sugar Slave Babies
In a brand new world
Sugar Slave Babies
Can’t take no more
Sugar Slave Babies
Forget what you hear
Sugar Slave Babies
It’s you they fear
Sugar Slave Babies
Track Name: Freedom to Talk
I find it concerning that I don’t care
Sit here and watch it, burn it
Hoping on a solar flare
Viral videos and brand new clothes
All because I don’t care

Soldiers to an endless dream
Soldiers of complacency
The guns are loaded and the credit cards rise up
Fighting a war that nobody signed up for
From the comfort of your TV screen

I don’t care what I want
I don’t care what I need
Freedom just to talk these words don’t come cheap
Track Name: Lament for the Sky
You look familiar
Seems like we met before
Ain’t it peculiar
Do you feel the same way too?

Cloudy, cold raining day
I’ve been waiting on you, to
Come my way

You look familiar
Seems like we met before
Ain’t it peculiar
Do you feel the same way too?

Cloudy, cold raining day
I’ve been waiting on you
I’ve been waiting on you
I’ve been waiting on you
I’ve been waiting on you

I can’t believe that you’re alive
I’m fucking done with the sunshine
Track Name: Mies van der Rohe
We are escaping the template that’s paved in the past
Colours bleed into land watch the culture collapse
Driven by fear we isolate the poor
Hide them away in Brutalist forms
Calling us gangs, express their dissent, conspiring against us they’ll never win

Miles Van De Rohe got me loving clean lines
Throwing stones in glass homes
Who is to blame, when the man has no face
Evil at play
Hold on my people, have faith
Track Name: Tongues
Sa mo kiltir mwa kin doner
Mo langaz zot tu koze
Mo zistwar pa facile pou zot remplacer
Track Name: RUOK
Hey
My old friend
It’s been a while since I checked in

How you doing?
These city blues wear out the best in you

Have you had enough?
Have you had enough?
Have you had enough?(are you alright?)
Have you had enough? (are you okay?)
