There’s chances you haven’t heard of French producer Real D yet but he is slowly but surely emerging as a name to follow this year. A busy start of year marked by the released of his debut solo EP ‘Stuck In The Realness‘, scheduled to drop via Danish label Waxtefacts and a contribution to newborn Parisian label Khasia Hills which we’re glad to stream in full below.
Our pick, the soberly-titled ‘Reality‘ finds Real D going for the smooth Chicagoan shuffle, old-school style. Metallic hi-hats and muffled kicks beat a hip-swaying pulse whilst a jazzy combo of vibraphone and trumpet shine out their smokey, graceful lustre. Up on the rooftops, when the sun sinks past the skyline and silhouettes begin to twist, its supple lo-fi notes shall glide upon tiles and zinc with superior agility.
Khasia Hills 01 is released on 15th February, pre-order a vinyl copy from Juno.
