Ian G. "About You"
With a name meant to trip up even the most alert of SoundCloud users, Ian G. is in fact a production pair consisting of Spanish beatsmiths Edoc and Pheeltek. Together, the two create lush compositions that situate themselves snuggly between textural ambience, cold-rinsed R&B, and the dense chug of slow-motion techno. Pulled from Ian G.'s forthcoming Meet You at 10 AM EP for the Avantroots imprint (out later this month), "About You" is a fine example of the hybrid formula the outfit is after, spending the first two minutes of the song swimming in a collage of grainy loops and distant vocals before laying a slightly off-kilter, bass-heavy rhythm under the procession—one which is only eventually pushed underneath even more layers of digital haze before the tune finishes its run.
