The first time I heard of Gustav Gustav was on the recently released EP “Berlin 64“. Now the Danish producer has released his first album “Daydreaming”.
Because of the album title I expected very relaxed and, well, dreamy beats. You can find them too, but the album offers much more.
In my opinion, the 11 beats live off their contradictions. Soft pianos meet cheerful synths and bouncy drums, relaxed guitar riffs unite with roaring bass lines and suddenly a jazzy piano solo comes out of nowhere. I’m especially enthusiastic about the dope drum programming and how he changes the rhythms.
Definitely one of the most refreshing releases of the last months!
