TRACK REVIEW: Wih’lo – Unbreak

Wihlo unbreak

Written for DIY

We might not have a clue how to pronounce his name, but we’re definitely not short of things to say about this 19-year-old Chicago producer. With more than a hint of Mount Kimbie – albeit Mount Kimbie if they could relax for just a second (or rather, six minutes), those hissing, skipping programmed drums a little more freshly-squeezed than ‘Carbonated’ – ‘Unbreak’ unfolds slowly and delicately, incorporating plenty of elements that are ‘in’ with producers of his ilk (Cyril Hahn, James Blake et al), from the pitch-shifted R&B vocal samples to the waves of fuzzy keys soaking everything in an after-dark, walking-home-from-the-club-with-ringing-ears haze. Spectral, sexy, soothing, sounds pretty good to us.
