At the intersection of nu-jazz and minimalist electronica comes LOUNGETUNES‘ “City Lights.” The Munich songwriter and producer propels organic rhythms into the wonderful world of digital production.
“City Lights” is a breezy joint with narcotic side-effects. Equipped with smooth brass work and subtly syncopated melodies borrowed from the golden age of jazz, this polished single is downright seductive. An ambient aura is markedly present here, shifting and stirring its way through a downtempo electronic beat. A spacey joint that eases all five senses, “City Lights” leaves listeners stimulated and satisfied.
