Giorgio Oehlers – ‘Rain’
This week’s track of the week comes from Netherlands based producer Giorgio Oehlers who has been blending soulful keys with crisp hip-hop beats for the past 4 years now.
His latest track ‘Rain’ is the perfect example of how to use a vocal sample tastefully. Lifting the vocal from the SWV RnB classic, also titled rain, Oehlers picks up the tempo a notch and lets the drums bang the record straight into 2017.
The production is effortlessly smooth, allowing the guitar to harmonise with the vocals whilst the instantly recognisable rhodes keys float and glide across the melody. Mid way through the track he switches up the groove to a half-tempo beat, jamming out before gradually easing you back into the insatiable chorus.
The soul is strong in this extremely talented producer and we’re excited to hear a lot more from him in the future.
