|➲ Somepling // Nuts One “Silent Lift // Low Pulse” ★ Self-released ★ Released 16 Nov. 2014 ★|
“This is a self-made project. Once again…
According Google, we are living 849 kilometres apart… But we’re living the same way.
Loving music, records, dusty samples… and of course working on beats on the mighty Akai mpc2000 XL sampler. It was inevitable, this 7″ was bound to happen one day.
Now, about the music, just samples flowing.
No need to explain everything, because music is made to dream and understand our own stories.
One record, one cover: two tracks, two designs… two stories. Enjoy!”

“Che Ramirez aka 4Sight grew up in a very musical household. Born in Ireland, now living in Philadelphia via San Francisco, his grandfather, the Latin-American composer Emilio Ramirez Garcia, instilled a lifelong musical passion throughout the family, with jazz, salsa, rock and classical being practised and performed around him from an early age as well as access to a wide variety of instruments.
An eclectic taste developed naturally… “My daily digest of music when i was around 9 years old was Gentle Giant, King Crimson, Aphex Twin, Squarepusher, Nine Inch Nails, DJ Shadow, Tool, Rachmaninoff, and Debussy among others”
His passion for jazz took him to study at the University of the Arts in PA, and the seed of 4Sight’s musical identity were sewn when he began to combine his jazz guitar playing with inspirations from the LA beat scene, and Brainfeeder’s output in particular.”
