As a follow-up to Emancipator and Cloudchord’s “Thumper” from, I want to share with you another beautiful composition from their joint EP Citrus Fever Dream (via Loci Records) which came out last Friday. Cloudchord is also a touring guitarist for Emancipator’s live band, but this synergy is just incredible.
I am definitely having a hard time pinpointing “Jade” down… one could say she’s a wild one. While it follows a rather downtempo-like structure, the 5 minutes and 13 seconds of this track also take you on a number of trips. Expect jazz, Eastern music elements, and chill out inspired by Nightmares on Wax.
While I love this instrumental, I highly recommend exploring the whole EP though! Stylistically floating between neo-soul, chill hop, and downtempo, it’s a collection that infuses the instrumental abilities of Cloudchord with the tasteful production sensibilities of Emancipator to great effect.
