German producer and multi-instrumentalist De Rien releases debut R&B infused, indie electronic offering with “Cali”. Residing between neo-soul, organic electronica and a splash of nu-disco, “Cali” is built on the foundation of a soulful groove set by a shuffling percussive line and mellow synth line, while lush layers of distorted vocals litter the track.
What personally caught me the most onto the track is despite the fact it is minimal electronics, you can never predict what the next take will be. And that reflects a huge amount of talent within the multi-instrumentalist behind it.
Sounds like: SOHN, Joe Hertz, Alina Baraz, Hippie Sabotage
