Nu Androids & Closed Sessions presents:
Despite being only 24, Dutchman Jordy Saämena has already achieved and accomplished many things. As a child he first became conscious of the wider musical world when listening to hip hop, old soul and garage and soon began drumming. It was a desire to create the full song, not just the bottom end, that turned Jordy onto production. Now, eight or so years later, he has switched with great skill and style between a number of different genres. In 2012 the musician and producer began studying Electronic Music at The Conservatory in Haarlem and soon became infatuated with bass. This is no surprise given Jordy s Moluccan heritage, a culture that is known for laying down exciting rhythms on traditional local drum, the Tifa.
It was at this moment that he dreamt up new moniker GANZ (also known as GANZ GVNZ, IAMGANZ or GANZEE) and began crafting the creations we hear today. This music he makes, inspired by peers like Rustie and Hudson Mohawke, is a melange of beats and bass, R&B smoothness with hip hop rhythms and so far has been released on labels like Terrorhythm Recordings, Bmkltsch Rcrds, Saturate! Records and HW&W.
The name Conrad Clifton is swiftly becoming synonymous with emotive, soul- enriched electronic music. The Brooklyn based producer has assisted Grammy Award winning producers with projects for world famous artists, and has seen individual success with his own distinctive hybrid of House, Electronica, Hip-Hop and R&B. Winner of the Independent Music Award for Best Dance/Electronica EP, Conrad is know as «one of the most exciting electronic artists to watch.”
Clifton‘s latest album is a soundscape with a sheer level of depth to it, which blends and delves into many different musical aspects to produce a cinematic wonderment. In the age of genre-blending, Beautiful Tragedy stands out as its own unique creation. It does a very good job of going beyond what’s expected, especially in regards to how certain sounds are brought together.
