Discovery: Billy Hammer

We have another slice of amazing lo-fi/chill-hop music for you, this time coming from American composer Billy Hammer.

By Jane Howkins

letting go starts out pretty slowly, with some pretty little guitar melodies. They sound fairly simplistic at first, but the guitars really help to curate an atmosphere here, drawing you into the relaxing vibes of the song straight away. A slow beat appears eventually, but it’s rather different from what you might normally expect from this type of song, as it’s very subtle, allowing the focus to remain on the rest of the instrumentation. The backing effects build up over time, creating more variety within this lovely piece – find it here:
