Why do we like this?
More often than not, new singles by rocomoco get added to my jazzy chill beats playlist. This time, though, he’s managed to release a song that resonated with me enough to feature it on the homepage.
The whole “study beats” genre is becoming more saturated by the day. We probably get sent ~20 songs in the genre on a daily basis, so it’s quite hard to stand out. More often than not the defining factor comes down to the melody – and a little of variation.
Here’s rocomoco’s take on the song:
The kalimba, as we know it, is a simple diatonic instrument you can instantly play with. It has a cosy, innocent vibe that connects instantly. We have rebuilt the kalimba in a sampler to add our electronic arsenal of lofi EFX. We wanted to automize, chop, pitch, bend, delay and filter the kalimba to its extends without ending up in a loose experimental space. Out came the very chilled tune „colimba“.
Bottom line: nifty stuff.
