Thavius Beck – “Rainy Sleepy Fambam”
Los Angeles-based electronic producer, rapper, and all-around musician Thavius Beck has been active on his Soundcloud lately (and as a long-time fan of his music [circa the year Decomposition came out], a smile stretched across my happy face when I saw that he followed me). Last night, he put up a song called “Rainy Sleepy Fambam”, and words cannot describe how much I was feelin’ it! Let me try, though. Quite the opposite occurred from the sleepy title suggestion, because when I first heard it, I became awake and alert–I had to hit that “repeat” button on Soundcloud and try to form some words to post with this awesome song. It’s a chunky, uptempo electronic beat that’s filled out with big horns, clapping drums, distorted noise, fat synth lines, dancing keys, and wonky robotic sounds. It shifts ever so slightly, creating a life of its own and I don’t want it to stop… ever. Repeat, repeat, repeat. Listen now.
