Sonder – Into EP:
The ‘Into’ EP seems to have been in the making since producers Atu & Dpat teamed up with melodic vocalist Brent Faiyaz to craft the .parts trilogy, which features my personal favourite piece of music from 2016 with ‘Victoria’. Sonder may be a new project but the artists who form this formidable trio aren’t. Atu & Dpat boast heavyweight releases with Pictures on Silence (I have listened to this project consistently for 4 years since I first came across it in my first year at university, so in my eyes it’s a classic – no doubt) and In Bloom. Faiyaz is no slouch either, his AM Paradox EP is a must listen for anybody who appreciates the 90’s golden generation of R&B. Their first official release is this 7 track Into EP that digs deep into the emotions of the listener. With soothing rhythms and even smoother vocals, take a night drive with this EP.
With this EP the trio bring back a nostalgic 90s R&B sound without making it feel as though they are simply transferring the old to new, but adding their own twist and making it a worthwhile project that will live with you for years to come. Into is a breath of fresh air in this era of trap infused and over produced version of the genre. Check out the EP below.
