Complex Sounds on Nym’s “Convex”

nym

From Loci Records and the production touch of Emancipator (Doug Appling) comes this insidious set of downtempo trip-hop tunes from San Francisco artist and producer Nym that will seep into your subconscious like water dripping in a cave. More mood music than foreground entertainment, call it Millenial Muzak, perhaps, or a half-asleep version of Rudimental . Nym enlists Spherelet on the most immediate-sounding track, “Wavey Blue”, which weaves an ethereal vocal into the mix. Smooth, silken sounds with beats and samples that barely register sometimes, this is an understated, elegant offering.
