South African artist Ryan Murgatroyd has a distinct sound I’m really loving and am stoked to be introducing him to TSIS today. His new track “Is That You” comes shortly after the launch of his exciting new Swoon Records imprint that came with a two track EP titled Wicked Eyes. Now he’s returned with a bourgeoning new track that truly takes listeners on an adventure.
It’s almost like the song tells a narrative with the constantly evolving layers from start to finish. There’s a cinematic quality about “Is That You” that evokes emotions through the pulsing basslines, swirling arpeggiated melodies and invigorating percussion. I can’t wait to hear what’s next for Swoon Records, but for now, enjoy!
“This piece of music is very special to me. A cinematic, winding journey full of emotion and intensity, and something I’ve used to open my sets for months already.It’s a celebration of loneliness, and hopeful melancholy. A perfect example of my sonic headspace–beautiful enough to listen to alone and yet absolutely capable of enchanting the right dancefloor.”
