Release number two for Soulvent saw the rise of another gifted young producer by the name of Harry Bryson, formerly known as Bryzone. Having traded a two letter name change for simply his surname in early 2015, Harry stepped up offering two glistening pieces of liquid, truly in keeping with a developing Soulvent sound.
‘Trial Run’ is beautifully subtle vocal-led track, with sun-soaked piano riffs matched by the soft sounds of Jenny Mayhem’s sparkling vocals. A rolling jungle-style sub bass and snappy percussion serve a perfect home for Mayhem’s airy narrative melodies, counterpointed with piano toplines. The pair truly prove that sometimes less is more.
B-side ‘Stargaze’ teases a slighter darker sound while maintaining continuity. A haunting piano build gives way to a undercurrent of strings and evocative use of piano once again capture Bryson’s sophisticated level of production.
