It has been a while since I first shared with you the mellow / obscure sound of Lion, Meet Lizard. Just like the artist moniker, the sound of Chris Tieken (the guy behind L,ML) is...quite difficult to describe. Inspired by sounds from post-rock, ambient/downtempo and lofi hip hop, the work of the Dutch producer is out of the box, to say the least.
His new endeavor "Discovering Japan" is mostly influenced by the lofi hiphop scene, but also enhanced with ambient guitar sounds and a laidback grooves. No buildups or drop, but the ultimate chill. The title of the track "Discovering Japan" is named after a short story by Bret Easton Ellis from his 1994 short story collection The Informers.
Now time to discover Japan.
