A smooth blend of Trip Hop beats, Lounge sounds, and dramatic film music: That’s Through Hills, the first album by Oldtwig. The organic harmony of this conceptual work clearly reflects that the producer was inspired by and pays homage to the forest.
Shifting from moments of melancholy to uplifting easiness, the mood of Through Hills is in steady change – exactly what I expect from a good album that can be listened to from start to end. Oldtwig employs a lot of piano sounds and string instruments which lends to the titles a very warm and sophisticated character, at the same time he keeps the Dope Beats coming. Released 29th April on Phonosaurus Records, this magnificent album proves the label once again to be on the forefront of intelligent music for laid-back listeners.
