Reed Benjamin from Durham, North Carolina, makes crystalline electronic music under the name CALAPSE. It drifts along like the waves and is thoroughly dreamy, with a very hushed whisper of the word “forget” occasionally floating along its contemplative melody.
So there’s something a bit deeper lurking under there that makes ‘Forget That’ more than just a casual chillout tune. Reed said: “For me the song feels vulnerable, melancholy, and yet whimsical and wide-eyed. I wrote the song to reflect feelings of uncertainty of where my life was at the time, and used it as a vehicle to urge myself to look forward,”
The song is the opening track from the producer’s recently released debut album, You Know How I Feel, which you can download on Ounce Music’s Bandcamp now.
