Producer, interviewer, Ryan is a bit of everything and his music is definitely like him :
light like a feather, solid like steel, one genre and many.
From the outrageous Cover yr shame EP where he actually covers some of the most unthinkable tracks of the pop scene (viva forever from the Spice Girls) to his tribute track to Charly Wingate it is difficult to confine Ryan Hemsworth into a category.
I’m certainly not mad about everything he does, but his work is like diamonds in the rough. Once you cut out and polish, you’ll get the best gems.
Weak at the knees from the album A Way is a real good example. On Castle in England processed hip-hop beats meet heavy synths. Ryan can even make good music from bad taste memes. His reinterpretation of Benny Lava (on the album No Plans) is really efficient, doesn’t make the joke brighter, but certainly easier to dance to.
Even his recent Gucci Anthem (from Kitsch Genius) has something very light and extremely lively.
(Most of Ryan’s albums are available for free, check the comments on the Bandcamp page and look for the mediafire links)
That’s however his last stuff that drew my attention. His track dedicated to Charly Wingate (Max B) is simply awesome. It’s an orchestra, a sea of delicate melodies carried by a heavy beat and a strong bassline. Excentric – the second break reminds me so much of the Beatles – and deeply geniune at the same time.
Ryan Hemsworth – Charly Wingate
Charly Wingate was released end of August on Ryan’s album Last Words.
The man from Halifax has also recently released a great remix of Tinashe. A sensual sexual object ! A must have in your playlist which actually you could get for free (wait for the link to be updated).
