New Discovery – Ryan Hemsworth


Nova Scotian producer Ryan Hemsworth is destined to be one of 2013’s rising stars. Main Attrakionz, Shady Blaze and Deniro Farrar are amongst the artists to have been touched by his brilliance so far, and he’s also been lauded for his remixes for artists like Grimes, Frank Ocean, Lil’ B and Slacker Shack favourite, Danny Brown.

His sound has been linked to the chillwave scene but according to those in the know the real term to use is ‘chill-trap’ (chillwave + “trap” rap – which is a kind of dubstep/hip-hop hybrid).

To me it sounds like a gently horse tranquilised Aphex Twin jamming with a minimalist DJ Shadow. Which if the following tune, ‘Colour & Movement’ is anything to go by, is certainly a good thing – check out the video below:
