A chance to breathe in restorative, fresh air in the countryside is one to never pass up. It seems the air in England's West Country is that of a uniquely fresh consistency which seems to somehow spark creativity. The strong communities of fans and producers under the region's vibrant music scenes makes Bristol markedly uncommon. One producer worthy of more ears from the region is Chalky.
First, we saw him featured in Koan Sound's track "Chalk It Out" on guitar and now in one of two singles out from his forthcoming EP Blooe. In "Saké", Chalky patches together a warm chillhop track from pure instrumental flows of Pennsylvanian violinist Alicia Kiah and both Jim Bastow (Koan Sound) and Luke Withcombe on keys.
As we're orchestrating our first ever Stereofox team summit in the mountains, we're taking our chance to get the fresh air. And breathe out the idea that it's tracks like this, which turn moments into audiovisual reels of life.
