As far as an artist collective goes, Hegemon, is still just a baby. However, there is nothing childish about the sound they have been producing over the last year - proving hard work pays in this industry
. Their freshman album drops later this year and Skrux is the forerunner for coming releases. With his track "You & Me", he sets the bar high for the remainder of the album. That said, if Hegmon's SoundCloud is any indication of what to expect as a whole, this is merely the tip of the collective iceberg.
"You & Me" is a refreshing and vibrant bit of melodic
bass. The production quality is crisp and clean, allowing for individual elements to step out and come to life. What would get lost in other productions stand out and create bubbles of happiness. A beautifully constructed, stripped-down atmosphere makes "You & Me" a great headphone track. Lost in the bright sounds Skrux has created, any trip you take will be an uplifting one.
If you dig what Skrux is dropping, make sure you check him out on Soundcloud
and head on over to Hegemon Artist Collective for some more excellent and diverse tunes. Additional tracks will be rolling out over time and I can't wait to will to see where their freshman release takes them.
