Bright, by Good Gatsby is a mix of beat making with downtempo electronic. The most remarkable thing of this track is the gospel samples used, that combined with the beats and how it’s arranged makes the final result something very chill for a bike ride after work.

Instrumental Hip Hop: Sal Dulu – Duluoz Dream

Chilling in Eden: Saro – Deconnecter

Inspired by an anti-social media movement aimed at building more natural relationships through departure from social technology, ‘Deconnecter’ is a new hip-hop project being released this summer that combines light synths and field recordings from Bristol / Japan to form a lofi bouncing atmosphere, created predominantly as a staging for female vocalists/MC’s

Chilling in Eden‘s newest feature is UK based producer Saro, with a lo-fi instrumental hip-hop track Deconnecter. As mentioned in the quote above, the track was inspired by an anti-social media movement, which is completely respectful due to all the complex problem that social media has caused to society in the recent years. As mentioned in earlier editorials from this blog, we don’t support social media that much, so we abandoned Instagram and use bots for FB, managing only Twitter in the end.

The whole thematics of Saro involve over-consumption, egocentrism and digitality, however they are presented as music in a whole delicate way, with light synths, a lo-fi instrumental hip-hop that is not only about loops. He has been featured in BBC and is making music for 8 years. Currently, he’s working on a full-length record.

According to the German producer with the same name, dEnK (without the punctuation): the track “has a chill trip-hop type of flavor and is well suited as music for relaxing and enjoying a good evening at the terrace”.
