Mutant Academy member Graymatter comes through with a new instrumental album titled PRODUCT PLACEMENT // SELF-PRESERVATION. I’ve been a fan of the talented producer for a while now, and I’m really glad seeing him continue to go from strength to strength on these new releases, with soulful yet hard-hitting beats that showcase why he’s one of the illest producers doing it at the moment.
“DANGER ROOM (INTRO)” starts off the project with a syncopated drums and ethereal keys, setting the tone for the rest of the project. The synths and and smooth bassline on “INTRAVISION” is funky and smooth, while the vocal sample on “LOOKONYRFACE” oozes soul. There are jazzier moments on tracks like “SYNCHRONICITY” and more hard-hitting moments on tracks like “DIAMOND GUTS” and “OSWALD’S MOWER.” He’s a truly gifted musician, and his production on Mutant Academy releases has always been top tier. He’s simply one of the best producers working today, and this new album is testament to that.
