The TesserAct might just be one of the best collections of the hip-hop drenched, head banding and finger tapping electronic beats, spicy synths, and some mind blowing electro sounds with just a touch of crunchy jazz and funk influence in all the right places, I have seen in a long while.
The album is a solo debut from a talented Toronto based musician Sunclef who, with his minimal yet surprisingly powerful tunes, brings us what is extremely hard to find amidst the many thousands of electronic releases out there – quality production.
The TesserAct, currently being offered as a ‘free/pay what you want’ download on Bandcamp, is a collection of five tracks from the artist. It starts off with Droski, a cut filled with hip hop nodding elements and excellent electronic beats that will keep you on your very toes. Catch A Drift is by no means different; it’s catchy beats create a unique musical scale movement full of blossoming energetic synths, perfect for those new car sound system you have been dying to try out.
But not all of the tracks are a clear cut electronic pieces, so if you are looking for even more substance head straight to Samolero with it’s unique and gorgeous Spanish/latino strings taking over the first part of this instrumental gem.
All in all, The TesserAct is a great, not-to-be-missed, debut album. So give it a go and dive deep into your own electronic dream.
