- Higher Ground by Rimar
8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 22 November 2011
Bella Union have been surprising with their current crop of signings. First Zun Zun Egui pop up on the label and now we have Brooklyn based hip-hop/R&B producer Rimar. 'Higher Ground' hits on that soulful dance party type stuff I associate with the modern Future_Funk era (Onra, Starslinger) and 'Chillwave' (Neon Indian, Washed Out, Memory Tapes etc) mashing them consistently into a coherent Ableton assisted Cloud City jam. Opener 'Higher Ground' starts things smooth and funky before 'Park Talk' embraces a champagne frenzy. From there on out it's a mish-mash of Dilla style beats, semi-familiar vocal cut-up's, funky bassline's, mad use of limiting and sweet synth textures, mainly dating back to the mid-80's FM synthesis boom. Rimar may not be bringing anything new to the table but his production style and general air of R&B freshness is always gonna be satisfying to my ears. So what's going on with Bella Union then? Anyone got the scoop?
