Sabzi just released a new mixtape titled “Delridge.”
Vanilla Black is the twelfth track on his release that is for sale here.
I track a lot of artists, but Sabzi is one that I’m always particularly excited for, ever since his work with Kelsey Bulkin in the duo Made in Heights.
Or, rather:M∆DE::IN::HEIGHTS:. In Prentioustan, it is our policy that you pronounce it “colon-muh-delta-dee-double-colon-in-colon-squared-heights-colon.”
Here’s one of my favorite tracks from their second EP “Winter Pigeons.”
Vanilla Black is an incredibly soothing track, despite the sharp percussion and rolling bass. And it’s definitely in line with what I’ve come to love about Sabzi’s production. He takes from his background in hip-hop, with Blue Scholars, and lets his sound perfectly compliment Bulkin’s soft vocals, and by himself is able to add an increasingly erratic groove to his music.
All citizens are urged to buy his latest mixtape.
But I’m excited as ever to hear what he does next.
However, there hasn’t been much activity with Made in Heights lately, and all of their music has left Bandcamp. Pretentioustan police are mounting an investigation to rule out foul play.
