Despite sounding like a classic American nu-soul act from the 90s, Sacha Vee is a talented young singer from New Zealand. Having scored some serious hits in collaboration with Polish rapper O.S.T.R., she is finally gaining more attention and respect for her solo work. "Ging" sees Vee wax lyrical over a hazy late-night swing groove, and giving the likes of Erykah Badu and Jill Scott a run for their money. There are two remixes included too - an otherworldly synth washed rework by Chef Red and a more minimal and spacey rerub by INT.
One of the tracks taken from the forthcoming Benny Tone album (due out in spring this year), "Chrysalis" blends anaesthetised rhythms and clapping beats with soulful vocals from jazz trained vocalist Sacha V. It starts off with an atmospheric intro with clinking, chiming SFX and warm, melodic synths shimmering in the background, slowly building up the layers, but always erring on the side of caution, it remains an understated slice of futuristic electonica for the duration. Bringing in a range of influences, with bass heavy foundations and elements from a range of genres, it will be a sure fire hit for any discerning music fan.
