Artist To Check Out: Thias

Article by kev@thesoundofconfusion.co.uk

Now that the whole world of music is connected by devices such as the one you're reading this on, it comes as no surprise that 18 year-old Norwegian producer Thias has spent time working with US hip hop artists. Whether he's visited the States we don't know, but we do know that he wouldn't need to. The choice has now been made to concentrate on his solo project, with the possibility of releasing an instrumental EP later on this year, maybe to coincide with some live appearances, he's already booked for Lydfisk, a festival in his homeland.

Being a solo ambient producer at the moment isn't an easy place to be; there are thousands of then jostling for blog space and with it the promise of building an army of supporters that are likely to invest time and money in shows and records. Sampling the various bits and bobs on Thias' SoundCloud he may have enough to keep his head above the water. Along with a couple of remixes are some nicely put together original tracks. At least a couple of which are already up to standard for a debut release. So we know there's potential here, now it's a case of watch this space.
