mp3: Samuel – Sausage Dog

It isn’t exactly hard to find atmospheric music these days and as a result artists need to deliver serious substance with their gorgeous compositions to stand out.  Colossal Heads is a newly formed crew of Melbourn based producers that is taking on that challenge head-on with their dreamy yet grounded electronic music.  Each track on their Colossal Heads One compilation showcases that the 5 artists in the group have a sense for writing airy stunners that showcase progression and dynamics with clear influences from Boards of Canada, Aphex Twin and underground jungle and bass music.  Samuel’s ‘Sausage Dog’ is an early standout for the way it manages to pack so many memorable moments behind its under-three minutes of reverb and haze.  Opening up with a sample that could have come off Music Has the Right to Children, ‘Sausage Dog’ develops into hip-hop inspired cloud of synths and drums before finally turning into a mutated cousin of cali-funk.  Colossal Heads manage to showcase a huge amount of talent on their first release and I’m really excited to see how the experimental crew continues to grow.
