Next up on XVI we are heading to New York City, delivering three laid back, hazy cuts from Queens, NYC based producer @haarschnitt . Dreamt up during his daily commute, gazing over the East River as his train crosses the Williamsburg bridge, he creates deep, tape saturated oceanic textures within the music, whilst simultaneously maintaining strong, rhythmic dance-floor sensibilities throughout.
iON 2A is a groove infused slow roller, combining crisp drums, classic sounding keys and a driving, unrelenting bass-line, the track takes it’s time slowly building momentum before being joined by a swirling synth pattern and haunting reading of Rilke’s classic Poem “Die Blinde” (The Blind Woman) echoing through the haze.
No Rush is a washed out, atmosphere drenched soundscape full of dreamlike chords, spiralling pads, rich tones and fluctuating frequencies. It’s skippy, clipped drums take on an almost 2-step feel at times, complimenting the lush instrumentation and making it a perfect tool for sun soaked, summer sessions. We’ve also included a beatless version, so you can really zone out and practise your astral travelling.
