Rising UK label Push & Run has passed over “Melle,” a new single from Canadian producer Benjamin Muñoz. Inspired by Nina Simone, iconic jazz pianist Ahmad Jamal and Crazy Bald Head’s “First Born,” “Melle” is a perfect introduction to Muñoz’s complex sound world and an enticing preview for his debut EP that will arrive later in 2017.
With touchstones that include video game scores and UK dance styles, Muñoz’s music is at once familiar and foreign; his inspired use of texture and creative sampling result in sonic spaces that sound like they are “taken from the worlds of anime series like Cowboy Bebop, FLCL, and Tekkonkinkreet, to name a few.”
You can pick up “Melle”—which was Mastered by Michael Keire at Threshold Studios—via WeTransfer below, and if you’re like us, you’ll be keeping your eyes and ears peeled for more from Muñoz this year.
