The Atlanta born Scott Herren – who came to the world?s attention as Prefuse 73 where he created progressive left-field hip-hop by blending jazz, soul, r&b, dance and rock. Subsequently, Scott has become an established producer, songwriter, performer and owner of record label Eastern Developments – has journeyed to Barcelona for inspiration and to familiarise himself with his Spanish side. The result of which is a new album, and somewhat of a departure, by Savath & Savalas.
‘Apropa’t’ is a cocktail of genres. From the echoes of classical Spanish guitars, the rich and breathy vocals of both Scott and Catalan singer songwriter Eva Puyuelo Muns to the very modern sounds of languid hip hop and downtempo. These are delicate, melodic and soothing songs, which are intricate without becoming busy. What really comes though is a richness of sound, it is like an aural truffle, delivering pleasure with a feeling of decadent indulgence.
