“Dreaming Again” is the last track from Tre Ess’ collaborative short EP with The MellowTurtle. He made the entire EP, ‘Blues Off The Ashtray’, in his bedroom in around 3 weeks. In addition, The MellowTurtle always play this Hugh Laurie song during their breaks, called ‘The Weed Smoker’s Dream’.
As a matter of fact, he knows the sample and when he heard it, he immediately went back home and started chopping up his samples. According to him, “This was probably the hardest track to sample in a while, it took me one whole day but I did get a layout. Rishab was surprised when I made him listen to it and that’s when we started building up on that beat”. For artworks, the job was handled by Boston-based designer, Sid Lohia.
