im sure that i wouldnt be alone in thinking that russ chimes is one of the most impressive producers out there at the moment. he has always been one of my favourites, but his latest bunch of releases have seen a continuous stepping up of his game.
the blog house days are clearly far behind him - he has gained a more refined, intelligent outlook on composition and the slickness in his production has developed astonishingly.
this video - which is part one of a series of three short clips which he is releasing in the lead up to his debut ep 'midnight club' - is one of the most exciting things i have seen in a while.
every part of production has been executed so perfectly. the song may be one of his best - strongly melodic, but restrained and carefully paced. and the video is something else: strikingly beautiful visuals & cinematography, and an intriguing, unique presentation of the story that sucked me in and had me watching until the very last second. compelling listening and viewing.
