album :: Hype Williams - One Nation

Chill-hopper duo, Hype Williams, released their album, One Nation, earlier this week on Hippos In Tanks. Lo-fi chill-hoppin beats and droned out electrifying synths. The album sets subsequent and accredited labels on this unprecedented sound of what we have started to call 'chillwave' or 'bedroom pop'. Their sound reminds me of something along the lines of Com Truise and Matthewdavid; down-tempo off beat rifts and wavy synthlines, that seems to be quite the trend in 2011. There's definitely a new movement in sound developing and it's become fairly persistent on these exemplifying tones. Each track has it's own subtle beauty that seeps through their rhythmical and textural soundscapes, coming to fruition with each listen. Purchase the album on 12" HERE.
