TITLE: You & Me EP (12”)

ARTIST: Bas Amro

LABEL: Freerange

RELEASED: 15 September 2014

I’m sure this name is probably fairly new to most and I wouldn’t blame you. I also came across him a few years ago and when that happened I was highly impressed and it was love ever since then. The one thing that I love about him and his sound is that no matter the production, you will be lured and attracted to it immediately. If you can do that in your own unique way then you have won me over.

It’s not every day you are impressed by a young producer but Bas Amro can do that with ease and all this from his greatly produced work of art. Bas Amro hails from the Netherlands and he started his production journey as a teenager having his first release coming out in 2008. Ever since then he has been sweeping djs, producers and listeners off their feet and has and still is getting acclaim all over the world.

One thing that definitely stands out is that whenever listening to his music you just go through a whole set of emotions all at once. His sound is deep but yet funky with some robust and spirited elements that make you want to dance. I don’t think there are any limitations when it comes to his production style and whether you listen to his music today, tomorrow or even ten years down the line, you still go through the exact same emotions as you did the first time round.

Focusing on his more recent release, I have to say out of the 12 inch vinyl “Across the Street” on Side 2 is the ultimate track that I would definitely recommend with no hesitations. The fact that you don’t have to wait 30 seconds to a minute just to hear the introduction of sounds/melodies is a plus. The soft and soothing vocals coming from Kennifer coupled with every aspect of the track including instrumentations just make this a great track. There are these breaks throughout the song that just kind of tease you a little bit before the beats kick in again and those are enough to drive anyone crazy for the song.

Timeless music is what I can definitely dub it to be.
