If you were left hungry for some more chill goodness after DMVU‘s new album last week, this is what you want to listen to immediately. After a two-year wait, downtempo legend CharlestheFirst finally releases his highly-anticipated album “SOLUS”. Following two amazing singles, “Out of the Dark“ and “For Now“, we are now being given a field trip of an album that will provide you with infinite amounts of both joy and tranquility.
What we have previously described his music as a sonic landscape, Charles brings forth an emotional journey like no other, one that spans thirteen tracks. You can hear how he blends these staggering lo-fi sounds with basslines so heavy that it hits you directly in the feels.
The first track “Learning 2 Pray” is a perfect entrance to how this exquisite journey will pan out. An array of piano, percussion, and nature sounds are combined into one to give you this mind-blowing build into what’s yet to come. Sounds of the past from the talented producer are very present, but Charles is always one to try something new. In many of his tracks, most notably “Figured U Out”, he includes more of his own vocals to bring out the spiritual and emotional side of him, and he crafts this wonderfully.
He also makes sure to bring fans plenty of variety. CharlestheFirst prepared three collaborations for “SOLUS”, with Potions, Tsuruda, and kLL sMTH. Each one of these collabs are unique, but perfectly blends each producer’s style of music with Charles’.
“SOLUS” is a fantastic example of how CharlestheFirst has evolved as a producer. He has blessed us, time and time again, with beautiful music that soothes the soul. He has a large discography filled with wonder, from his first album back in 2016 with “Running Through the Forest”, to his highly acclaimed “The Ascent“, to his stunning EP “No Dimmer“, he has proven that his stamp in the bass scene will remain for a very long time. Today’s release proves it once again, and he is on pace to become a household name very soon!
