Restorative blunted beats with: Eric Hilton – Who Are You? #Chill #Downtempo @EricHiltonMusic

Here’s a new track from Eric Hilton who was/is half of Thievery Corporation, a classic 90s duo who delivered America’s finest downtempo with their blend of stoned beats and dub allied to samba and sitar. Here’s the new single Who Are You? from forthcoming album Ceremony.

Thievery Corporation was a Washington DC affair but Eric has recently moved out to Maryland. The new single doesn’t stray too far from the basic TC template but evokes a more pastoral air. Who Are you? is build around the slow thud of dubbed beats giving a classic smokers paradise feel. Over the top are laid tinkling piano and ethereal vocals. There’s an undeniable warmth to the track that’s hard to define but definitely comes through. There’s none of the liberal anger of TC’s earlier work. This is all about wide-eyed wonder. And none the worse for that.

Beautiful slow chill to fill the space you’re in.
