Fountain Child - 12TH
Currently based in Shanghai, China is the UK born producer, Fountain Child. This is my first encounter and I quickly became hooked by his mesmerizing beats and fresh take on combining ambient and lo-fi house.
His track, “12TH” from the ep, This Story Is No Longer Available showcases his unique style and refreshing sound. Opening the track is a textured environment, with birds chirping in the background and an ambient swell at the center of the track - you think you know what to expect but you absolutely don’t. Moments later, we’re introduced to an uptempo, lo-fi house type of beat and a vocal sample that all pair amazingly well. The beat adds a fun and memorable feel to the song, giving it a new level of depth. I look forward to Fountain Child’s future releases given his fresh and welcoming approach.
