Owen Ross & arc rae
Spells EP (Tape)
There is a palpable sense of longing in the effortless, rhythmic soundscapes of ‘Spells’, the collaborative EP by French producer arc rae and American producer Owen Ross. The four songs are the first product of their connection through the Berlin musical collective ‘High Wires’.
arc rae’s unique live looping techniques and lush compositional sense form an unlikely yet compelling synthesis with Ross’ gritty samples and jazz tinged harmonic sensibilities. The artists’ various influences effortlessly make space for one another as ambient tableaus seamlessly blend with hip hop inspired beats to draw the listener’s focus in with dreamy yet rugged cadences.
In addition to a digital release, ‘Spells’ will be available in a limited edition tape via Slowtrane.
