Troy Gunner is a producer I’m ashamed to admit I’ve only recently discovered, but I’m sure glad I did! His productions are beautifully moody, often feeling both melancholic and uplifting simultaneously – almost a feeling of synesthesia within the music. He’s quoted as generalizing his work “…strictly as “Electronic Music” – or “Electronica”, I let that do the talking.” and I couldn’t agree more. To me, this is true art, expression and vibe. Impossible to replicate; a sound that is truly his own.
…and what a sound! I’ve picked this tune ‘Headlights’ from his recent 3-track release, ‘Headlights EP’, released on The Crescent, which I’m incredibly impressed with. The track simply pulses with life, and you feel it within seconds. Though you won’t find the eccentric sampling found in tracks like ‘Fools Gold’, off his ‘MINDSET009′ release, you can’t miss his funky bass work, nor his choppy vocal sampling and light-hearted percussion. What more can I say? I love this release.
“Every artist is different – do we start conjuring genres per artist? To reiterate, this is “Electronic Music””
