Earlier this month, Los Angeles producer (with coolest name in the biz,) Seven Davis Jr. released Lo-Fi Vintage a mostly experimental beat project. The album title is ironic because it’s not completely lo-fi or vintage. It dances between future funk to glitchy, awkward rhythmic beats. Sometimes he’ll manipulate vocals to soak (wobble, down/up-pitch, flood, distort) within the track’s spastic percussion. Don’t get me wrong, it’s interesting, but it can get pretty weird, pretty fast. In fact, the whole release is extremely weird, but I’m fairly certain that’s how Seven wants it. If you’re unfamiliar with the cat he’s recently been included in a Brownswood Recording compilation, Kutmah presents Worldwide Family Vol. 2. Other artists featured on the release include previously unreleased Flying Lotus, Samiyam, Slugabed and Hudson Mohawk—so he’s in good company. Lo-Fi Vintage is odd, but it’s worth a listen.
