Spencer Brown has proven himself to be a full-fledged sonic wizard over the course of the past 11 months. In 2019, the San Francisco producer has unveiled everything from a deadmau5 remix to a collaboration with Raito, following up his successful 2018 album, Illusion of Perfection, with a string of notable releases.
His newest collection includes (so far) two songs: the six-minute “SF to Berlin” with Ben Böhmer and its counterpart, “Lose You,” which is a solo Brown venture. As with all Spencer Brown releases, the new songs are dreamy and thought-provoking. “SF to Berlin” is easily identifiable as a Brown-Böhmer piece of work, with its drifting melody and otherworldly, serene soundscape. “Lose You” takes the energy up a notch as Brown taps incorporates powerful female vocals into his peaceful instrumentals.
