Between the amount of releases being dropped almost every single minute, I’ve been stuck on YUME‘s latest reverie entitled “Video Games.” I always ask myself, why? Why everything this kid shares, I always end up listening to on loop? There’s something about his sytle that stimulates and obligates myself to listen to the entire piece from the beginning until the end. I believe that’s actually the biggest challenge of the actual scene. If you don’t like the aesthetic and the beginning of a tune, you’re probably not going to listen the rest of it. Anyway, and… despite being so young, the New Jersey beatmaker clearly shows his immense natural musician resources, not just in terms of quality production, but also reveals an interesting creative process. According to Jesse’s own words : “just for fun not related to any of my past or future work at all.” “Video Games” crosses some sort of retro feeling (due its crispy synths) with a real bad ass vocal sample.
