Bumbasee is the moniker of LA-based producer Alex Tirheimer. Tirheimer has only released one single to date, but we were so enthralled by his sound that we were eager to discover what he’s been listening to.
This is one of the newest finds I have on repeat. Have no idea what this dude is saying but the melodies and vocals are awesome. Everything sounds like mouth sounds but it’s still a banger!
Ratatat – Cherry
I decided a while ago that this song would be played at my funeral. It gives me chills every time. It’s an instrumental that almost feels like a ballad with sweeping guitars that feel super angelic. The climax at 3:35 is one of the most beautiful moments of music I have ever heard. It’s a very special song to me.
Tuxedo – Do It
This is just a straight up party jam that I don’t get tired of. its funky, it makes me smile, and it doesn’t take itself too seriously.
NxWorries, Anderson .Paak, Knxwledge – Suede
This song has the nastiest hi hat I think I’ve ever heard. Super behind the beat and danced all over by Anderson. So damn cool.
Jai Paul – BTSTU
When I first heard this song it blew my mind. He breaks a lot of rules with his production. It was a turning point for me creatively, knowing that you’re allowed to put silence where it shouldn’t be, and that when used creatively, even the most abrasive sounds can be twisted into something beautiful.
