Ryan Hemsworth is a Canadian producer I have now been following for a few years ever since his insane mix for Fact Magazine which contains over 40 tracks spliced into one whole 60 minute listening experience. It featured acapellas from the likes of Danny Brown, Lil B, Andre 3000 and still managed to sound extremely new, fresh and inventive. Fair warning before you press play below, I have wasted hours trying to find some of the rare acappelas Ryan includes in the mix such as the Donkey Kong Country Theme / Aquatic Ambience feature and most of them simply don’t exist. Just sit back and enjoy the music.
Anyways, Ryan Hemsworth is back with a single from his new full length album ‘Alone for the First Time’ titled ‘Snow In Newark’ featuring Dawn Golden and it’s a stark contrast to the tunes Ryan has been putting out in the past. Hemsworth himself has described the new album as “a reaction to all the party music out there now” and features seven new tracks with guest appearances from the likes of Alex G, Lontalius, Kotomi & DOSS, the GTW and Little Cloud.
The video for ‘Snow in Newark’ has just been released although you can only watch it on Ryan Hemsworth’s website (LINK) and again it follows his quest to leave the club behind. It was shot in Nepal over the course of a week and you have to say it suits the vibe of the song perfectly. That single is coming out as a limited edition 7″ on October 28 with a B-side, ‘Body Pillow’, featuring Maryland ambient/R&B explorer Ricky Eat Acid.
The album ‘Alone for the First Time’ will be released on November the 4th on Last Gang and his own Secret Songs imprint. If you enjoyed this little writeup you can find me obsessing over new music on Last.FM and Soundcloud.
