After releasing a stellar EP earlier this year titled Rhodes To Success, talented North London based producer Naye Fshr comes through with a new 4-track EP titled Seleção Trio.
Starting with the sound of the Brazilian national anthem as well as a snippet of what I believe is their national football team during the 2002 World Cup, Nathan brings Brazilian samples and incorporates them in some soulful production that reminds me of Sango’s Da Rocinha album series in its use of samples from the South American country. Naye Fshr is however, able to make it into his own, with the same kind of character I felt on his Rhodes To Success project. The way he is able to chop that sample on “Ordem E Progresso” is amazing, with its ethereal synth notes that are backed by gorgeous keys and an infectious beat. “Toque De Samba” is dynamic and brings out an infectious grooves that is brought by the incredible groove that is accompanied at times by percussive elements that bring a raw energy to the track. “Nûmero 10” closes the EP off with a slower paced tempo that is accompanied by beautiful keys and a groovy bassline that commands the rhythm on this track.
Overall, this is an excellent new project from the talented producer and journalist. I’m sure this is only a teaser for what’s to come in 2019, and I’m looking forward to what’s to come next year. Only growth bro! Really on the road to success (pun intended, shut up). Listen to Naye Fshr’s Seleção Trio below via Soundcloud, and don’t forget to support!
