It was impossible to miss the oozing potential of Lazydawg’s 2011 bedroom / basement beat tape Warped Cream. Disguised as just another lo-fi love-letter, to the repeat listeners it was a neon engine from another dimension. Surely this overlooked mini-masterpiece was only a preview of the full-length effort taking shape behind the scenes.

‘Pastel and All This’ is Lazydawg’s first proper LP. If Warped Cream was a window, Pastel is the door. Step inside to a record that’s gleaming with sonic energy, a comfortable and carefully produced musical collaboration brimming with bouncy beats.

Omari Jazz: “Lazydawg is a common ground between our solo stuff. We just bring our aesthetics together to create another entity. I definitely think of it as a singular character with its own story.”

Jack Vogt: “It gives us a lot of room to explore different sounds and processes. one of us will make a beat and the other will start putting stuff over it, and then the beat evolves into this crazy sonic wolf-monster, and we put a leash on it and call it Lazydawg.”

Step Pepper welcomes Omari Jazz & Jack Vogt. We’re releasing their free collaborative mixtape from back in April called WarpedCream. Omari and Jack live in two different cities so they work together online. They make raw beats with lots of texture.

Omari talks about LΔZYDΔWG and the WarpedCream mix:

“The way we worked on the tape had either of us doing drums or adding samples. We also tried to put a lot of the older songs we did earlier in the tracklisting. So the tape is sort of a progression of our collaborative skills over time. We kinda wanted the quality to be very short and ‘warped’. For some of the tracks we recorded jam sessions then went back and edited. Most of it was done in layers.”
