This year we’ve decided to bring you a different artist each week that has caught our attention.
Over the last year I have exposed myself to more electronic sounds with an organic quality to them like the works of Amon Tobin or Eskmo, whose music is sculpted into an intricate tapestry of an unorthodox palette of sounds, both textured and melodic.
Hailing from Glasgow and born in Iran, Soroosh Khavari who goes by the name SOOSH, made his debut with a self titled EP back in 2011. Released on FUSELab/Jumble, Soosh EP brought together succulent downbeat HipHop and pastoral melodic with plenty of microscopic details and soothing mental rhythm, lyric mood of a summer evening and crumbling crystals of subtle percussion. Not to mention a remix of ‘Rainbow Hiccups’ by BRAINFEEDER’s LAPALUX!
In December 2011 Germany based record label, Error Broadcast re-issued Shlomo’s – Shlo-fi Ep, on which Soosh’s remix of ‘Couch’ was featured. I guess they were impressed by his efforts and they asked him to fashion his first full length album.
As a result, this February, Soosh will be serving up a double LP titled COLOUR is BREATHE [Error Broadcast] and if it is anything like the digital bonus track ‘Touched’ you can expect a high dose of abstract hip hop and atmospherics that are evocative of the music that is breaking boundaries in LA.
Colour Is Breathe will be released by Error Broadcast on February 25th, 2013 .
