Krygystan born composer Fushe is turning heads in the chillout world with his cool downtempo lounge vibes. With a couple of releases on Bonzai Elemental and featuring on the “Pure Chillz” compilation we continue to get locked in to these smooth grooves.
First up is the title track “Amnesia”, beautiful sweeping pads and sweet melodic plucked notes open up this track, tight kicks and crisp hats come in and settle down into an awesome chilled out ride. When the melody takes over your mind is transported far away in thoughts, brilliant.
“Chillses” has a very spacey feel to it with its high pitched notes and almost machine like sounds, a beautiful vox pad sits nicely in the background and ties up the melodies very well.
Yet another fine chilled out release for the very popular Bonzai Elemental imprint.
