Gabriel Garzón-Montano strikes a blend that pulls at strings you didn’t know existed, convincing you the summer isn’t quite over. Walking bass lines on top of a Questlove-style drunken drum kit create a welcoming slow funk groove. Gabriel adds more detail with percussive lead vocal and background adlib harmonies faintly echoing similarities to Omar. With such unique qualities captured in his voice it’s even more appreciated when you know that this was all composed and performed in real time by Gabriel straight to tape.
‘Everything Is Everything’ is taken from Bishouné: Alma del Huila EP, released on the New York based label Styles Upon Styles earlier this year.
