9ICK’s new single, “Des Fleur”, released via Etymology Records is the label’s newest and one of the most fierce lo-fi releases.
A perfect blend of electric guitar, saxophone and arpeggiating harp, the track’s harmonies are lush and soothing to the ear. However, the key takeaway from this track is neither the harp nor the saxophone or even the guitar. It is actually the drums and percussion. While we’re used to associating lo-fi with mellow soft drums, the collaboration between 9ICK, Hippo Dreams and mariussax “Des Fleur” has proved otherwise. Rhythmic patterns with many different tonal percussion textures will allure your search for chillhop grooves.
