Fast-rising Jamaican recording artiste Tessellated has released his highly anticipated Tropics Vol 1 extended play. The multi-hyphenate producer-musician – who is no stranger to completing nonconforming musical works – has, once more, captivated music fans with this new EP’s genre-bending undertaking.
The young songwriting maverick previously garnered international acclaim, after his I Learnt Some Jazz Today hit single was selected for the soundtrack to tech giant Apple’s Emmy-nominated Airpod Bounce advertisement.
Tessellated’s latest foray in music introduces the artiste’s seven-track euphonious musical experiment that further showcases his knack for borrowing unusual and entrancing elements from several genres to curate a formidable body of work.
Tropics Vol 1, the musician’s first album, flaunts a symphony of presumptuous sonic discourse; penetrating trumpets, scintillating guitars riffs, and thrusting drums audaciously traipse across reggae, hip-hop, latin and trap cores.
This unconventional musical fusion manages to successfully frame the intention of the EP, which features African afrobeats star Crayon as well as the oftentimes-producer’s countryman, Grammy-nominated musician Protoje. Tessellated also manages to transfix the more amenable music lover by exploring his vocal dexterity, never ceding to complacency, on the mixed bag of treats offered on the album.
The tracks,Rendezvous, No Ansa, Santeria, Sweeter, Me & My Lady, Tropics and I Learnt Some Jazz Today, expressly team to execute a satisfying global footprint on the artiste’s fresh-out-of-the-blocks, daring and eclectic debut.
