Last weekend (July 12, 2019), French electronic producer Uppermost released a new single titled ’23rd Street” via his own label Uppwind Records.
With the latest single, expect another atmospheric and evocative offering that ebbs and flows, reminiscent of the sound with which he has made his name yet demonstrating something completely fresh and revitalized. For those unfamiliar with the sound of Uppermost, according to the bio, he draws inspiration from acts such as Daft Punk, Burial, Bonobo, John Hopkins, Apparat and Deadmau5. His sound draws parallels to elements of Yuksek, Burial, Breakbot, or the deep emotional bass beats of Kavinsky and Klimeks and his impeccable influences are combined to create something new and exhilarating. Here’s a feature written about him early this year.
Behdad Nejatbakhshe, the creator behind Uppermost gives some insight into the track: “I think there’s something about old-school hip-hop vibes that’s highly inspiring. Like a vintage, handcrafted, urban feeling. In this track, I tried to convey different emotions that bring me on a creative journey such as nostalgia, hopes and lost memories.”
