Discovery: Ash Riser

Experimental RnB act Ash Riser provides the chill on this Sunday morning.

By Graeme Smith

Ash is quick to point out he is not a rapper, producer or singer and it’s true enough in his new track Sonder. It’s feels closer to rhythmic spoken word than rapping and it’s some way away from a highly-produced contemporary RnB song. It’s very difficult to describe and that’s always a good thing.

At two minutes long, it does feel like a mere sample of the Ash Riser sound, but it’s enough to snare us. See if you feel the same and check out Sonder below.
