Beat Culture‘s Goldenback Weaver has been gaining quite a few plays on my iTunes over the past month or so, and with the release of a new collaboration with one of my favourites Steffaloo last month; I think it’s time you started listening to him as-well (that is to say, if you have not-already been).
Belong is a beautiful lo-fi synth-pop style piece. SBTRKT and The XX influence is prevalent, even perhaps some M83 in for good measure. But that’s not to say that Beat Culture has simply mimicked the sounds of other artists- to the contrary, his solo trip-hop works are a stylistic blend of sampled records, lo-fi synths and mish-mashings of other noises, while pairing up with Steffaloo has given him the opportunity to showcase his talents as working with a vocalist to create something more dynamic. There’s a-lot going on in Belong, however it’s all crafted to fit together so-well it manages to avoid sounding busy or ‘cluttered’ as can sometimes be the temptation when artists produce vast-dreamy glo-fi pieces.
