As the year comes to a close, the latest 2021 releases are quickly trickling in. These are pivotal moments for the artists, because they represent a send off for 2021, and an auspicious beginning for a new year of music and creativity ahead! “VISION”, a brand new EP by George Pham, happens to be a perfect representation of this. The EP stands out as a groundbreaking combination of different ideas and creative influences, as the artist set out to combine the mesmerizing flow of chill-wave with the unmistakable dynamics of modern lo-fi hip-hop music.
The EP kicks off with “Vision (A Third Eye). The track features spoken word segments alternated with beautiful electric piano parts and some filtered drums that are pleasantly saturated, but still quite present. The modulation in the keys is amazing as well, giving a vintage tape vibe to the mix. The second track, “Vision (A Psychedelic)” is also a powerful and dynamic mix, combining movie dialogue with mesmerizing synthesizer soundscapes and melodic piano parts. The drums kick in soon after the intro, adoring the mix with a lot of reverb on the snare, allowing for more ambiance and a deeper spatial dimension of sound.
Ultimately, ”VISION” is a fantastic achievement for this talented producer, and the quality of the tracks is nothing short of outstanding. Every element in the song mixes is tailored to perfection, offering a unique sound and a details-driven production that makes the listening experience all the more engaging for the audience, since there are many rewarding “ear candy” moments through the duration of the EP. From the atmospheric sounds of the introduction, down to the essence of the melodic elements in the mix and the meaningful spoken words, anything goes.
The aesthetics of the sound match the creative concept as well, giving the audience a truly unique perspective of what George Pham is all about and the kind of mood that he really wants to portray with this studio EP.
George Pham is up to something special here, as the sound of this EP feels like a huge step forward for an artist who knows how to really set the bar higher in terms of bringing new creative ideas to his flow.
