Skai Nine debuted this year pushing out five records in just ten months. I’ve seen this type of activity before, and especially with bandcamp artists; they can release whatever whenever. But there is something very distinct that sets Skai Nine apart from the rest of the bedroom producers: consistent evolving quality.
Even though I am featuring just one of his records, they’re all great in their own right, and each song can hold its own. Another thing that makes Skai Nine so great is his excellent production skills. Everything stands out loud and clear.
While this record is the only one that actually costs something, I will say that it is with good reason. With songs like Bhang Out, Dirty Violet and Night Eye, I’d gladly slap down some cash for those alone. The record provides a diverse amount of material ranging from hypnagogic movements to pulsating beats and sampling that – while not new to the scene – was somehow reinvented with a fresh view by Skai Nine.
I don’t remember how I found this guy, but he is clearly doing something special that people really need to pay attention to, because if I can find a song to listen to for any moment, then that is something worth talking about.
