SOHN – Artifice
Coming off the back of collaborations (and remixes) with some of the most groundbreaking artists of 2013 – Disclosure, Rhye and one to watch, Banks to name a few – Austrian Producer SOHN has given us a beautiful, beckoning peep through the window to his debut LP Tremors with the first single, Artifice. He was on our 2014 watchlist, and by the sounds of things, he’s climbing higher.
SOHN’s production techniques have taken big steps since 2012’s The Wheel. Still keeping with his unique electronic layering and textures, Artifice immediately packs a punch of vibing energy. The spacious tinkering beats keep your ears pricked while the soaring synths and faultless vocals keep you lured in, wanting more. Tremors will be released through 4AD April 7.
Check out the vid for Artifice, directed by Thom Glunt. Behind a continuous curtain of drizzle on a dark rainy night, you can spot SOHN! It’s in slo-mo so you have plenty of time to find him.
