Premiere: Hear an Emotive Cut From Benjamin Muñoz’s Debut EP
'Fear And Its Variants' drops on Friday via Push & Run.
Back in March of this year, we were introduced to Muñoz’s sound when he released “Melle,” a track inspired by Nina Simone, iconic jazz pianist Ahmad Jamal, and Crazy Bald Head’s “First Born,” via XLR8R‘s downloads section. With its skittering percussion and creative sampling, “Melle” introduced us to an artist with an inspiring vision and interesting take on UK electronic styles.
Muñoz’s new EP is inspired by a “turbulent 2016,” offering a glimpse into his state of mind during this time via a collection of emotive tracks that ebb and flow in a dream-like fashion. Like with “Melle,” the new EP further shows Muñoz has a deft hand when it comes to unconventional, mind-bending rhythms and abstract textures.
Ahead of the release later this week, Muñoz and Push & Run have offered up a stream of EP cut “Cerulean Mood,” available to listen via the player below.
