Changing and keeping with: Hugo Marsh – Keep #Downtempo #Ambient

It’s hump day in a tough week. Can’t be doing with anything too upbeat. Not enough energy for that. Hugo Marsh provides something more soothing and a bit ambient downtempo on Keep.

Hugo Marsh is from London and his work revolves around experimentation. That means a bunch of unfinished tracks. The featured track, Keep, is from the album Seedlings. This is a concept album in which he says, “I take some of my unfinished tracks and ideas, and turn them into a record.” You’d not know Keep was unfinished. It’s become a lovely hazy ambient piece.

Flickers of chip tune flirt around the edges of creaky clattery beats in a downtempo IDM style. But holding those disparate elements together is a gentle ambient fairground synth that rises and falls. Gives the whole thing a lovely meditative or contemplative air. It’s all very hazy and a bit woozy. A sleep deprived lullaby for better days. Until the rain comes to wash things away.

From the album Seedlings
