[Instrumentals] Savon – “Something, For Now”

savon

The second largest city in Michigan, Grand Rapids has a developed an impressive linage of historical figures. From Former Presidents of the United States to a Soul legend, the Western Michigan city has had a significant impact on American culture. The influence continues to grow stronger with the younger generation taking the command, which begins with the emerging Hip Hop collective AGO (Astronaut Gang).

Comprised of recording artists and producers, their experimental hybrid sound of R&B, Hip Hop, and Dance has broke new ground. Building on top of what veteran members have accomplished, the 19 year old standout producer Savon has released a new instrumental tape Something, For Now. Inspired by family, friends, and close loved ones, Savon is able to develop a cohesive five track tape that really embodies the sound and feel of the AGO movement. From the opening track titled “Peaceful (Intro)” to “Time is All We Need (Outro)”, the tape creates an overall guideline and aesthetic to their signature production. For example, the warmth of the analog, melodic synth chord progressions, serene vocal samples, heavy use of low pass, and faint percussion all make there presence felt. Most importantly, the execution of getting the listener into a groove or a trance to really help understand what mood and atmosphere the artist is trying to create, is effortlessly achieved

With the title referring to patience and grace, Something, For Now is a reminder of what they do best, and Savon and his AGO collective deserve all the time they need; because the consistency of each project independently released, proves the artistic freedom they’ve been given is a key essential for the progress of this genre and music .
