Brilliant, a personal favourite and a whole new streak of talent, intention and unstoppable creativity from producer and DJ Tommy Hart. Versatility is key, and this project has it mastered.
This isn’t wallpaper or elevator music – you are going to have to sit down and listen. And you’ll be rewarded with a unique listening experience sans vocals. These pieces feel like musical conversation between different groups of musical voices.
There are so many stories within this project – so many scenes and sounds and artistic conversations. Sometimes things feel classic and familiar, sometimes they feel completely out there and impossible to pigeon-hole.
A magical listening experience that will change your entire outlook if you let it. It’s like a series of films, but your mind creates the visuals in response to the audio stimuli.
While there has always been an air of originality and freedom to the P’like sound, this project seems to have reached another level altogether.
Leo Harmonay writes and performs because it’s simply a part of who he is – you can hear this, and you can feel it, throughout Naked Rivers and indeed throughout all of his music to date. Always an artist worthy of a listener’s trust.
As a producer, speakea𝟝y describes his music as ‘angsty millennial type beats’. Perhaps this is the perfect way to define his approach, but there’s far more to the sound and experience of this project than a simple four-word phrase can express. Depth and substance play a huge part, lyrically and in terms of the emotion and mood that each soundscape presents you with.
Though it sounds like easy listening from the outside – calming folk vibes, plenty of optimism and beauty – there’s an element of depth to much of the writing that adds a subtle layer of intensity. A brilliantly unique artist and a really well captured new playlist. Absolutely worth discovering.
A self-proclaimed musical chameleon, Scotty Seed takes no direction from genre or industry expectations – this album underlines the artist’s inherent creative freedom; as well as his softly soulful approach to performance, and his equally free and poetic angle when writing.
Mutlu is a superb songwriter, and thanks to the organic and creatively refreshing nature of the soundscapes and set-ups that feature throughout Good Trouble, this skill is permitted the true freedom and strength it deserves; making for a playlist of original songs that connect and uplift and engage their audience in a mighty way.
Washington D.C. pop-rockers Broke Royals keep the art of the concept album alive & well. Driving with sweeping instrumental warm, smooth guitars & an equally smooth yet emotionally loaded leading voice, Saint Luxury presents a collection of superbly written songs that each tie in somehow with the project’s underlying ideas.
Consumed brings through a conceptual playlist that lays bare an artist showcasing a certain balance between that which is deeply personal, and that which is a little more vague and broadly accessible.
