BEST NEW INDIE: HANSAA, SOSO - PRIMAVERA FT. A.CHAL
Searching for that new sound? Well good, because "Primavera" has got a completely original lush lo-fi soul sound unlike anything I’ve ever come across before. A.CHAL, fresh off his debut album Gazi, lends his unconventional, enchanting RnB songwriting to sensuous future soul production from Hansaa and soso. While Hansaa originally hails from Australia and splits his time there, it was in LA that he met up with production duo soso (Ryan Aicklen/Danny Thrasher) to knock this moody indie-soul wonder out of the ballpark.
HANSAA, SOSO - PRIMAVERA FT. A.CHAL
White noise crackling beats, piano stabs, tiny tambourines driving the drums and errant basslines that are fatter (and more reminiscent of Seinfeld) than they have any right to be— this track has everything you could ever dream of. You rarely hear an RnB track with this lush of production. Normally you get crooning vocals over stripped down tracks, but this isn’t your average collaboration, is it? No. All three acts bring their A-Game to this song, combining their efforts into that magical new soulful sound you’ve been waiting your whole life for. Now you’ve got it, what are you going to do with it? Don’t just stand here listening to it over and over again. Spread the word! Share the link!
From deep within the murky depths of the Los Angeles River emerged a creature: 50% raver, 50% comedian, 10% Robotcop. Kurt Kroeber doesn’t own a dog, operates Soundbleed (the world’s only dance party comedy talk show rave), and is down to party with you. Come up some time and say “Hey dude!” But definitely make sure to casually drop the secret Illuminati password.
