After the release of his single “West Coast Lights” last autumn, ChasBeats has returned to grace us with his full length album “Dusty Memories”, a project which, packed full of chilled out soulful beats and gorgeous imagery, concentrates just as much on visuals as it does on audio.
After bringing out his extraordinary debut album “Episodes", Zesik yet again hits the ground running with his second body of work “Terra Incognita”. Known his hard drum breaks, dusty instrumentals and the conceptual nature of his music, Zesik has produced an EP which embodies dark trip hop with cinematic elements, balanced out with the haunting warmth of Zesik’s jazzier side.
What is immediately noticeable when you listen to Human Centerpiece’s debut album “Dormin” is the sheer amount of variety on the release. The texan producer has kept an open mind when it comes to genre, incorporating characteristics from a full spectrum of his music taste, rather than limiting it for continuity’s sake. However, despite this, “Dormin” is anything but lacking continuity. Human Centerpiece has kept it tightly woven together with attributes known only to him; a masterful control of dynamics and space, as well a hint of sweet, gloomy darkness.
A trip hop album with dark, cinematic elements, “Episodes” immediately evokes a dusty city vibe which Zesik deftly puts together using a complex mix of intense, hard drum breaks, distorted synths and vintage detuned pianos.
