  • Deep downtempo

    2014 - 10.14

    So I heard this song “Radio Juju” by Daniel Masson on SOMA.FM Groove Salad a while back and just rediscovered it.  Really feeling the minimal, almost background house vibe and the absolute wash of deep soundscapey elements that fade on top of one another, working in a hypnotic and creamy pad tone, some selectively-matched tribal sounds (I think?) that fit well with a rhodes, dialed all the way back on the tone bars who lays down the most interesting chords on display here.

    The guitar at the end is both anthemic and haunting with the telephone-EQ delay chasing right behind the melody.  And the French dude ends it just how it begins with what sounds like morning rainforest in an reverb-chamber.  That, dear readers, is how you make a real downtempo gem.
