I never thought of blending jazz elements with classical orchestral strings and cinematic elements, but the combination is absolutely astonishing.

Texas-based producer and trumpeter Theo Juarez is a true visionary and a breath of fresh air in the instrumental scene. Inspired by artists like Roy Hardgrove, Farnell Newton, and Soul Food Horns, the young artist embraces experimentation as second nature.

"Come To Life" is deeply inspired by the video game Nier: Automata. Theo used 2 tracks from the game soundtrack to lay down the foundations of the lush horns and the piano.
