Tycho: Past is Prologue

More Tycho. This guy is so good at what he does. Past is Prologue is the fruition of Scott Hanson, a San Francisco artist and producer. Having more mainstream success that before, Tycho has even had one song ("Cascade") appear on Toonami on its last ever stream. As said by Ghostly International, "Hansen blends swirling melodies into vaguely triumphant arcs that crisscross between stuttering beats and vocal samples, creating rolling sonic landscapes that extend into the horizon. Known in the design world as ISO50, Hansen is famed for his bucolic, sun-drenched design style, which serves as a backdrop and mirror for his musical output." Nothing else can be said. A lush, expansive imaginary landscape of sepia-toned keyboards, warm downtempo beats, and mile after mile of sun-dappled beauty fill this album. This album, as well as his other releases, have a similar sound, which is loved by many. Listen to these on a rainy night, or anytime, and you'll be sure to pick out some odd and keen sounds. An avid listener is best for these songs.

Past is Prologue gets a 9.4 out of 10. Let's hope he releases some new music soon.

This is only the beginning of what's to come.
