Paperdreams is a young emerging artist providing an incredibly fresh take on the lofi/jazzy hip-hop sound that has risen to popularity over the past few years. Clean and refined, the subtlety and detail in his work sets it cleanly apart from the highly saturated world of lowpassed pianos and movie monologues.
"one afternoon" provides further evidence to support such a statement. Filled with subtle riffs and melodic runs, paperdreams manages to make this piece feel refreshingly electronic yet retains a comforting acoustic texture to tie things together.
Having gone from relative obscurity to now sitting on a string of releases on established labels such as Crest Musique and Play It Louder in under a year, he seems set on a relentless upward trajectory. "one afternoon" will surely serve only to increase his momentum when it releases on May 25th as the opening track of the Play It Louder "Spring Vacation" compilation.
