#22 Tender Grasp – Can’t Wait


Hear me now!

Today I learned about a new music genre through the song I bring you today. To be fair, it’s rare the occasion when I’m sure about a music genre definition, and what makes it what it is. Categorizing what we’re normally listen to won’t be that hard, but I’m sure we follow artists and listen to songs without even imagine the culture and specifications behind them. Being concerned with assigning the right labels to music isn’t something very useful to the common audience anyway. But there is always a reason (I hope) behind these names, which normally provide cool insights about what you’re listening. Labeling music is an interesting topic for discussion, but let’s get right into the track of today’s post.

“Can’t Wait” is the first release of Tender Grasp, a portuguese Future Funk duo. A “future what?” I asked myself… Apparently there isn’t a single definition of it. After reading some posts and comments about this topic, it seems Future Funk is a sub-genre of Vaporwave (another thing I had to google, because I had heard of it but never listened to). FF has it’s roots in Funk and Disco, and fall back on the use of samples (love it) around the 70’s and 80’s. There is also some sort of connection to Japan that I couldn’t figure out properly. I would be interested in learning more about Future Funk, so add what you know down in the comments if you want.

Anyway… The track I bring you today is quite uplifting and light, what it seems to be natural characteristics of this sub-genre. “Can’t wait” screams night life and fun moments. Just take a look at it and tell me if you agree. I listened to it in repeat mode for and hour or two…

#Special 20 Davide Gravato -Handpan Freestyle

Yeah, “it’s mi, Mario!”. Don’t know if everybody is going to get that, but what I was trying to say was: yes…that’s me in the video. I was expecting to post something else, but with work and study, I couldn’t arrange to post another’s musician/band video.

In this video, somewhere filmed in 2015, I went to the Pedra Azul’ Park (ES-Brazil) to relax, and end up filming an improvisation on my handpan. This stone is known for changing color up to 36 times per day. It’s not easy to see from the angle on the video, but there is a smaller stone on it that resembles a lizard. So that’s it… hope you enjoy.

Artist – Davide Gravato
Song/video – Freestyle/ improvisation
Genre: Handpan music / Metal music / Other

#13 Naskou – Felony

Well well… today I bring you a piece from Slovakia! I’ve never been there, but I lived in Krakow for a year… pretty close (random fact of the day). So, this track belongs to Naskou and he posted it on my Downtempo Artists Group, and I felt in love with it. It has great texture and a cool variety of sounds. What I’m about to say may sound cliche, but I feel this track tells a story. First, I got influenced by the name of it – Felony. If you don’t know what it means, is basically a heavy crime… so when I started listening to it, I felt like a crime/mystery story was being told to me. Unfortunately, I end up not imagining the ending… was the assassin captured?

Artist – Naskou
Song – Felony
Genre – Crime story?

Now I’d say “follow Naskou on Facebook etc etc”, but he told me he hasn’t one, so follow him on Soundcloud, where “Felony” is set for free download:
