Multi-talented producer Bluestaeb thrilled us with his Noah Slee assisted single “Mind” a while back but now he is back with another solid effort titled “Left & Right.” The instrumental single is a brilliant blend of funk, neo-soul, hip-hop and then some. The producer delivers a multi-layered soundscape that builds every minute from the throbbing synth bassline and the rhythmic groovy drums. Additional piano production was supplied by instrumentalist Jonathan Aréna who employs the Korg SV-1 to good use.
He also gives us an insight into the background of the song ” This song is a result of moving from Berlin to Paris. I was in a new environment, felt freer, and had to switch it up from all those 91bpm Hip-Hop beats. In Paris I met the pianist and producer Jonathan Aréna. We immediately connected and started having sessions pretty much every weekend, which formed the sound aesthetic of the album (even though at the end he only plays on 4 tracks) – also because he has all this analog equipment laying around.”
“Left & Right.” is off Bluestaeb’s upcoming LP “Everything Is Always a Process” which will be out in June this year.
