TUNE De Rien - Chimes
On the heels of his debut "Cali", German producer and multi-instrumentalist De Rien demonstrates his versatility with hazy sophomore offering "Chimes" (via Berlin label Lekker Collective).
Residing between neo-soul, organic electronica and a splash of nu-disco, De Rien not only showcases his ability to create wonderfully warm soundscapes as a producer, but proves he has the vocal chops to boot, with "Chimes" presenting itself as easy-going yet intricate piece of songwriting.
Picking up the soul-infused vibe of his first release, playful guitar riffs wind around a thick and organic groove.
"Chimes" is about looking behind your own facade - discovering the flamboyance of thought and mind. As every step towards a dear person can be hard, it is easier to do so while sunken into reveries. - De Rien
