GEO - Good In The Bad
This is my first encounter with GEO, the Los Angeles based producer who so easily blends elements of jazz and lo-fi hip hop. Sprinkled throughout his work are stunningly beautiful details, like the vocal samples utilized in his latest track, “Good In The Bad.”
The song has a cozy vibe to it, one that you can sink yourself into. Opening with a warm string section, we’re quickly greeted to a laid back and melancholic piano melody. These two pieces are paired with a glitched out vocal melody and it’s just heavenly.
“‘Good In The Bad’ is the most introspective song off of my upcoming EP Sincerely. As a whole, the EP is about battling my 20's and feeling lost in my own identity. "Sincerely." is chaotic, confident, messy, sensitive, and candidly optimistic; my second single ‘Good In The Bad’ explores the latter.
Yu Yi is the result of a year of ‘figuring out my sound.’ Aside from the emotional attachment I have for this piece of music it really was a series of trail and errors of finding the right musicians, getting the right tone and producing it to a place that I was happy with it.

The way the track breathes is quite unique - stopping and going, allowing the piano melodies to find their place. Underneath these melodies is the sounds of the outdoors - birds chirping and a light breeze passing by.
The piano melodies that echo through Andrew Gialanella’s meditative piece, “Drift” are incredibly breathtaking and provide a comforting atmosphere for anyone who listens.
And then there’s the unique way Tourist integrates vocal samples - it’s as if they become an instrument all on their own, floating throughout the track giving another beautiful layer of depth to the already astounding song.
There’s something about the vocal melodies that transports me back to warm summer evenings where there was a care in the world.
This song aims to provide a progressive listen that mimics the wonder of seeing this event for the first time.
The song features a colorful melody that bounces throughout the song and echoes a feeling of hope and inspiration.
Liam J Hennessy’s latest track, “Emerge” is quite the sonic piece as it features multiple layers of well crafted instrumentation that will transport the listener to another time and dimension.
