ChrisB. – Triangular Objects on Gravitas Recordings

Gravitas Recordings Los Angeles Headtron Glitch Music Producer ChrisB.

Check out the latest release from label mate ChrisB. Out today on Gravitas Recordings

    An electro-organic tidal wave of harmony and divergent sound design illustrates the beginning of Headtron all-star ChrisB’s new EP “Triangular Objects”, out on Gravitas Recordings January 15th. It’s been nearly two years since his last solo release, but Los Angeles native Chris Brown reveals that this time has been spent hard at work. These six individual gems, ranging from the main room to the bedroom, are sure to stand apart in any bass music lover’s collection.

    A barrage of psychotropic and integral melody distinguishes both “Fluid Dynamics” and “Space Dust”, with large detuned leads bringing grit to what might otherwise be whimsical tunes. “Trendy” shows Chris’ interpretation of the recent trap movement – but instead of reproducing the same exhausted sound palette, this intrepid producer merges his unique synthesis construction with heavy 808s to create an entirely fresh offering. Meticulous percussion steers the intro of the title track, soon giving way to reserved jazz keys set atop a laser-infused bassline. The EP comes to a close with the upbeat “Eye in the Sky”, which boasts complex synth work and funky bass riffs suitable for a 5-string Fender.

Stranger Review from the Wall Street Journal

On this, his studio debut with the group, the drummer Mr. Clark gives Balmorhea additional color and drive. “Artifact” kicks off with a series of overdubbed choked guitar notes, reminiscent of Andy Summers’s work with the Police, before Mr. Clark joins in, playing in double time on the rims and high-hat cymbal while Mr. Chapman adds rubbery bass; soon, Mr. Lowe’s power chords are augmented by the squeal of feedback. “Fake Fealty” rises from a wash of strings and churning guitar; Mr. Clark holds back as a xylophone plays the melody, but is a big, aggressive presence as the song progresses. He zooms along with Mr. Muller’s piano and the string ensemble on the soaring “Dived.”
