There’s a certain feeling that comes about when discovering a remarkably unique artist on Soundcloud. It’s a feeling that’s pretty hard to match, especially when you’re incredibly passionate about music. When it’s a producer, it’s hard not to think, “WOW this dude could make killer beats for *INSERT RAPPER HERE*.” The elusive Bine, who only has a few blurry shots of himself and a surreal Twitter outside of his music, carries an aesthetic that sounds sort of like Boards of Canada were they crafting their sounds in a decrepit trap house.
Saying that, skittering hi-hats are thankfully kept to a minimum, and his squelchy sound is simultaneously haunting, beautiful, and just a little menacing. “Street Embryo” isn’t one of his most intricately detailed tracks, but it is one of his best. Showcasing his frosty synths and vivid percussion, it’s the perfect entry point into his mesmerizing sound. Listen to “Street Embryo” below, and sample a couple of his other tracks below that.
