With my crazy work schedule I don’t tend to find new music, but thankfully I have Kyle to introduce me to the best that’s out there. Recently he turned me on to Saffron, a New York based musician who has a couple of great EPs out, both of which you can listen to on Soundcloud. I’m pretty horrible at describing music so here’s how his label 1080p describes his sound.
Saffron’s hybridized genre builds include trip-hop, moody downtempo, sturdy walking-paced house and crunchy IDM with low key cinematics drifting throughout. A multitude of textures protrude from a general coating of slick motion and moods that hover above meticulous bass grooves and piano lines, blending an undisguised sense of proficiency and surface-obsessed sensibilities with sincere and overtly “soulful” tones.
In layperson terms it means he blends quite a lot of genres into one experimental, electronic sound. I find his music amazing to work to, it keeps my mind active and creative. Of all the tracks on this EP my personal favorite is “Rampwalk” which I’ve been playing on repeat a lot.
