Earlier this month, we received word about the upcoming release of anonymous producer Road To Shaanxi’s debut record on True Panther Sounds. After sampling the EP’s electronically lush lead single (and title track), “Revelation,” we now have another cut in the form of “Floating Away” to sate our curiosity. Much is still not known about the artist — though his expert use of the balance of negative space and relative density in his compositions would suggest someone who’s been doing this for a very long time. Whatever the background and whoever the person (it’s bound to be revealed at some point), the music does a good job of speaking for itself. Winding jazz-influenced beats and cinematic stretches of synths around intermittent vocal samples, he deliberately and meticulously creates vast landscapes of jittery percussion and complex melodies. Listen to “Floating Away,” another track off Revelation, below.
