Japanese producer Metome is one of those artists who is able to explore disparate sounds whilst retaining his own unique style. In his case, his style rests on two pillars: jazz and sampling. Alongside blissful, laid-back jazz chords, he showcases a true talent in the locating and isolating of good samples, and the subsequent expert placement of these chopped-up gems, reminiscent of the carefree improvisation of jazz.
In Bshop's Ring Sun his characteristic electric piano battles with wide saw-wave synth chords in lounge-esque progressions, fraught with gaps that allow his rapid-fire sampling prowess to shine through. Lickety-split percussion clicks like appreciative beatniks in the background, subtle kicks line the track and claps drip with cool in a fantastic melding of genres from skiffly drumstep rhythms to a future R&B feel and, of course, jazz.
Alongside this Soundcloud upload comes confirmation of a new album, which is "coming soon" – we can't wait to hear more.
