For a producer of any age this is an easy to escape within collection. For one as young as twelve, I’m excited to hear what the future will bring from Acidic Base.
It is absolutely possible to write original songs in this era, the sort that draw no comparisons but feel completely expressive and fresh. Chantitown proves that consistently with this project.
There’s an inherent connection between the voice and the words expressed by it, which seems like a simple touch but it’s something often lacking in modern pop – it’s also something that can’t really effectively be faked.
Social Media Sadness in full is easy to escape within and it showcases some superb creativity and professionalism from a music production perspective. There are also plenty of ideas within worth considering at this time in our lives.
Jony Shelby gets impressively creative throughout this EP Mango. His production style and his use of melody with dashes of hip hop all fuses well to create something atmospheric and appealing on a number of levels.
Always one to throw in more than a few subtle curve balls, Forest Robots proves there is no limit to his creative reach – no hill too high to climb, no sound too unusual to approach & master with professionalism & care.
There’s depth and a little sadness, this song in particular brings together these elements in a captivating way. The more you hear, the more it connects.
DYLI offers up some blissfully mellow vibes on this latest single Cherry Coke. A simple ambiance emerges, a classically warm beat & a few distant synths bring through gentle colour & calm. Alongside of this, DYLI’s leading voice drives with a modern RnB style & tone.
The lyrics and even the melody to an extent feel like unedited outpourings, an artist working out the world and letting you go along for the journey.
The whole thing feels like a hypnotic audio journey fit for those long nights in at home. The voices though, the lyrics & details, the multiple personas – all of this adds something a little more interesting & with a more intentional direction.
A brilliantly fresh beat kicks off this single from New York’s Goldee Clarke. There’s a fine fusion of that which is retro and classic, tribal even, and that which is simply brand new – crisp, clean, and perfectly suited to 2018.
The places these compositions take you are impossible to describe. The answer is to simply turn up the volume and let yourself fall into the moment. The journey within is likely to be completely unique for each individual listener.
