Space Ghost "Stuck"
- Words: Glenn Jackson
When one thinks of West Coast beat music, Los Angeles immediately comes to mind, and then maybe the Pacific Northwest—specifically, Portland and its hometown Dropping Gems crew. However, the large metropolitan zone between LA and the Pacific Northwest known as the Bay Area isn't without its own leftfield beatmakers. For example, Space Ghost is one of the region's quickly rising talents, an Oakland resident and recent college graduate who today followed up last year's You're There LP for Astro Nautico with the self-released Patient Mind EP. Pulled from that brand-new effort is "Stuck," a woozy, textured beat bathed in a stoney haze and dripping melodies that manage to leave enough room for its snappy snare and languid kicks to breathe. The track can be found alongside six other Space Ghost originals over on the producer's Bandcamp.
