“Mantis” is an introduction into the creative mind of Aleixi Saba, going by the moniker Sabzi, who is one of the rare producers whose talents seem limitless. Alongside the crystalline vocals of Kelsey Bulkin, the refreshingly different electronic composition never fails to be anything but interesting, with subtle tribal drums, a gently whining guitar, and a medicinal dose of trap. Sabzi isn’t one to be predictable, and his most recent experiment really, really works.
This track is just one of the many multi-genre gems from the Made In Heights ‘albummixtape’, the wøøds, which you can download here. It’s a playful and impressive collection of sounds from the Sabzi-Kelsey tag team, and definitely worth having in your digital library. Here’s what Mr. S had to say about the new venture:
“I put together a sort of albumixtape to lead you on an audio journey thru the HEIGHTS called: the wøøds. Consider it a lil’ lagniappe of sonic fantasy foreshadowing some of what’s to come in 2014.”
There’s no news yet whether this track is destined for an album (fingers crossed), or if the ‘albumixtape’ will have to keep us going for a while. But, there’s plenty of innovative stuff on there, so enjoy fellow musicheads!
