Here's another piece of patently atmospheric beat music from LA's Ryan York (a.k.a. Asura). "Silver Trees" is the first piece from a forthcoming split album comprised of five tracks from Asura, also dubbed Silver Trees, and three from Non Projects label head Brian Simon (a.k.a. Anenon), called Damiel. Here, York's production exists in an interesting middle place between club-ready, low-end-dedicated rhythms and ethereal synth and vocal melodies. It brings to mind the work from fellow SoCal producers Baths or Nosaj Thing, but with a larger element of aural texture and melodic fog blowing into the mix from unknown places.
Silver Trees / Damiel will be available July 13.
