You may remember we featured Sal Dulu’s work on the blog a while back! He made a quite a splash with his tracks Dulouz Dream and Antasma back in 2017. On ‘Tyko’ Sal has raised the bar higher, whilst remaining true to his own cool and laid-back style of electronic music. The rhythm section’s strong on this one, with crunchy lo-fi drums that could fit into a hip hop instrumental just as nicely as they do here.
The playful use of samples here really inject the track with personality. On Tyko they’ve been drawn from a diverse range of sources including field recordings of random street noise and dialogue from a Japanese game show. Given the resonant synth and brass melodies throughout the track, it’s unsurprising that SD cites Jazz and electronic as two main influences.
Reppin’ Dublin, Sal Dulu’s productions are another great example of the fresh and interesting music popping up more and more back in Ireland! You can stream Tyko and the rest of Sal’s music on the usual digital platforms, Soundcloud embed is above if you somehow missed it!
