Bay Area artist/ producer, Alleyes Manifest (Michael Bridgmon) plans to release a four track EP entitled “Beautiful One” on June 5th, 2015. Alleyes projects a series of raw instrumentation and expansive sounds inspired by funk, psych and future-soul. A sequence of dark drums and beautiful reverberated melodies captures the tone.
He sampled his own voice and David Ruffins for use as accents in his recordings. Each kick and key was played live with loops to keep it entrancing.
The first single called “Pure Hearts” is available now as a pre-order bonus here. I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy of this project and It’s suuuuper nice the four tracks blend amazingly into an sweetly hypnotizing series of drums and all kinds of layered sound – you can definitely leave it on repeat for a while. “Pure Hearts” is actually the most mellow and upbeat track on there. Alleyes describes his EP sonically as
A layered cake waiting to be devoured by the ears of a listener’s. The earth is in a transient state “Beautiful One” is my vulnerable music testimony to shape something new for the people to embrace.
“Beautiful One” will be available online at selected music streaming sites and itunes on June 5th. I can’t wait for y’all to hear this.
Be on the look out for more music by Alleyes Manifest!
