Drew Gragg "Metroplex Theme"
With an academic background in electroacoustic composition, jazz guitar, and orchestral composition, Montreal-based musician Drew Gragg and his recently released Over-Under EP are an exceptional fit for for Nicolas Jaar's Other People label. From that record, "Metroplex Theme" is a minimal trek through colorful, reverb-heavy synths and muffled percussion. The drum patterns are eventually taken out of the last stretch of Gragg's composition, as it's left to concentrate on the voluminous and somewhat somber sonics of the ambient keystrokes present throughout the piece. The rest of the up-and-coming Canadian artist's Over-Under EP can be streamed in its entirety after the jump.
