Good morning.

It’s Friday so we’re listening to something more upbeat. Today we’re listening to upsammy, a Dutch electronic music composer. Thanks to Cassius for the recommendation. She repeats simple yet profound phrases, like Steve Reich, and creates profundity by looping. Zoom, from June, plays fast-paced drum rhythms under mysterious and inventive synth clips. 2019’s Wild Chamber is a bit darker and on some tracks fully ambient. Last up is a brilliant techno set she performed last year at the DGTL festival in Amsterdam.
