BEATSOFREEN feat. JOANNA BORROMEO “Bloom”

Beatsofreen

After delivering the EP “Coloured Dreams”, a little tribute to the late & great J Dilla, Beatsofreen’s continues his journey with the label Darker Than Wax to bring out his forthcoming EP “Dimensions”. He has been taking people by surprise (me included) with more Jazz-orientated beats with the alias Stan Forebee. The track “Bloom” featuring Joanna Borromeo is the first single off the EP and is about self reflection and pushing yourself to reach your goals.

With The Dimensions EP, Beatsofreen’s approach it first as a musician, and then as a producer – working with less samples and recording live acoustic instruments. Something which has always been part of work for film and radio but was never included in personal production own music, until this project. While creating, this EP has the intention of an electronic influence, it is balanced off by an earthy Jazz element – and the maestro is revealing another layer of his talent by becoming an allround producer.

Worldwide release on the 3rd of July and already available for iTunes, Beatport, Spotify and RDIO and of course Darker Than Wax.
