Suryummy – Genesis ClarityPosted: July 19, 2016
[ Constellation Tatsu, 2016 ]
San Francisco based Emmett Feldman a.k.a. Suryummy names some of his influences on Bandcamp and Last.fm: he cites Boards of Canada, The Orb and Tycho as his main influences. And it’s one of those moments when I feel quite silly because I’ve heard the student, but I haven’t heard the teachers. No, really: I’ve heard maybe 2 or 3 BoC tracks, maybe one track by The Orb and never heard Tycho. But guessing from Genesis Clarity, these artist must make some really chill music, because Suryummy beat-based ambient music is just spot-on: ultra-delicate structures glide effortlessly on the soft rhythms that sometimes remind the listener of progressive electronic classics, but without the pretentious titles and album covers. Here we get some GREAT downtempo music which just takes you to the next level.
