SoundCloud Souviner – Sun Araw and High Wolf

29 Sep

Sun Araw has swiftly vaulted himself in to the upper echelon of psychedelic tune makers and internet buzz creators.  If you are unfamiliar with his work, he is extremely well versed in his musical exploration jumping from drugged out spiritual jams to afrocentric dub inspired tracks, here is a small sample of what you can expect as he tweeted a link to jam, entitled “Shrine Time” he did with France’s psychedelic diplomat to the world, High Wolf, enjoy.

SoundCloud Souvenir – Ramp Recordings

21 Sep

This edition of SC Souvenir is going to be short, but hearty, like BBQ pull pork eating contest hearty, and something I could totally go for right about now, well just the pulled pork not the eating contest. Amidst the darker side of Autumn that locks us inside to study or work with it is gray skies and rain, as it has these past few days in NJ, try to overcome with the help of some the seriously awesome dance tracks that are up on Ramp Recordings SoundCloud;

One Love

SoundCloud Souvenir – Slime

7 Sep

This a concept for a post I have wanted to do for a while now, featuring a link to, and tunes of a musician’s soundcloud page that I am really feeling.  I hope to make SoundCloud Souvenir a regular occurrence on the Brainbow(one a week maybe?). So it only be fitting that I start with the artist that inspired me with this concept , U.K. Producer, Slime.

In the vast technological landscape of cheaper, easier to use audio equipment that doesn’t compromise quality, accompanied by the modern plethora of software and other accessible means to record your own tracks, any pea brain can string together a couple of layered loops and call themselves a “producer”.  Unfortunately they are just producers of uninspired garbage lacking any musical depth or emotional reference. Similar to the douches we all knew(and maybe still know) who formed shitty rock bands in the late 1990’s early 2000’s, compiling three chord riffs joined by cliched lyrics all in an attempt to get laid.

Slim is everything these internet dweebs are not. Slime is the solo project of 19 year old Brit, Will Archer, whose musical talents transcend the keyboard and mouse game,  and reaches a much more advanced level of approach to electronically produced music. His skill with rhythm is clearly evident, as you’ll hear, his beats are not overly convoluted striving for unnecessary complexities, rather achieving a much more mature depth in his exquisite execution. Archer’s sound is extremely cohesive utilizing a collection of instruments, ranging from guitars and drums to sax, flute, and clarinet, all which he plays himself.  The Slime motif is evident, and there is clearly a lot of space for him to grow. I am so glad I caught him early in his career, and look forward to his future releases with great anticipation. How could you not, when the potential for this kid to reach genius heights is so blatantly evident.  Here’s my favorite track on his recently released Increases EP.

Find Slime on Facebook, Twitter, and order his record here.

One Love
