ABOUT THIS ITEM
“Immediately impressive… He takes the beats and the basslines from original, long-forgotten hits from that era, then coats them in memory goo.” - Guardian
“I'm not 100% sure if Rimar is already everyone's fave "new-R&B" production dude, but if not, he should be” – Altered Zones
“What Washed Out might sound like if Ernest Greene had spent his youth smoking blunts and listening to George Clinton records” – The Line Of Best Fit
Closer is the new EP from Rimar Villasenor, a 24 year-old Brooklyn-based producer and songwriter who came to the attention of many last year with the rather sublime EP ‘Higher Ground’ – an album that showcased RIMAR’s talents to mould 70’s funk with the smoothness of modern R&B via J Dilla inspired beat-making.
Closer continues where he left things on Higher Ground, the bass is heavy and beats are dense as this seven song album fluctuates between club anthems and a more introspective and thoughtful output… regardless of which direction he chooses the slickness of it all remains.
