The track comes from the 'It's Alright' EP, which is out tomorrow
Today's exclusive track premiere comes to you courtesy of Denver-based label Artist Intelligence Agency, as iDJ brings you the first chance to hear Synaesthesia by New York producer Uri Allgood. The track comes from his three-track EP It's Alright, which is out tomorrow (10 May).
We can't actually tell you a great deal about Uri Allgood: according to the hype sheet his parents were a Dragon Goddess and the bastard son of Icarus, and he was inspired to make music after five years immersed in silence with a cadre of Tibetan monks, but we're gonna go right out on a limb here and suggest that they might just be making that up. We do know, though, that he's on a mission to "challenge conventions of pretentious deep, underground house in an approachable, chill AF way," and that he's resident DJ at Burnin Man's Magic Hour camp, and on the Lucky Star art car, which will make its debut at this year's festival.
No surprise, then, that dreamy, playa-friendly deep/tech house with strong melodic leanings is his stock-in-trade. Elsewhere on the EP, It's Alright itself is a broody, slow-building cut with a big proggy bassline and a treated male vocal intoning the title, while It's Too Late is a more contemplative, sundown-oriented affair. But for us, the vaguely dystopian/sci-fi sounding synths of Synaesthesia just nudge it ahead of the rest of the pack.
See what you think…
