Originally meant to be released on his next record, Detroit-based electronic producer and drummer Shigeto decided to drop a melancholic but hopeful tune early given the Presidential results last week.
This song was finished on november 8th, 2016 with the intention of using it for my next record. i sampled an inspiration to me, detroit artist, tyree guyton speaking at an event a couple months ago and used it in the intro because it spoke to me.
on the morning of november 10th a light went off in my head and realized the song had to be let go.
no matter how i feel or what i’m thinking about the 2016 election.
no matter who i voted for or even if i voted at all…
i’m thinking about what i’m made of right now.
i’m thinking about what we all are made of right now, what the world is made of right now.
i’m thinking about who i want to be and how i want to play my small part in this world right now.
The track launches with a soft piano and a mellow flute, before the singer’s soulful vocals make way to a drum beat. The overall experimental vibe of the album seems to match up with the artist’s earthy sensibilities. Her mastery of the electric harp is also fun to watch.
Just in time for the weekend, Tycho AKA Scott Hansen drops his newest track ‘Epoch.’ And it’s just that, epic.
Listening to Tycho is like listening to what Verge called ‘designer music,’ a mishmash of art and sound. Hansen doesn’t force the visual cues — he sees them after feeling out the music.
As the song starts to develop, I start to see visuals, and not the other way around.
Anytime I hear Tycho I ruminate on things past, present, and future. His tracks create an ambient zone for introspection but also make excellent tracks to work to. They are peaceful, positive, and productive vibes.
