Russian artist Makebo steps up on Gorje Hewek’s fledgling Peace Symphonies label with new single ‘You’. Makebo is one of a new breed of Russian acts attempting to take steps on the international stage, with recent releases on Lee Burridge’s All Day I Dream and Shanti Moscow Radio.
With a sound rooted in the melodic, his productions are deeply personal as he displays once again here. Peace Symphonies launched in November 2020, the brainchild of artist Gorje Hewek.
‘You’ is a near eight-minute slice of gently evolving, electronic excellence built around warm chord progressions and subtle drum programming that provide the base for the ethereal almost indie-esque vocal delivery.
Sound design and understated melodies make this an affair that is as much a home listening experience as it is a possible sunrise beach party contender.
Makebo’s ‘You’ drops on Peace Symphonies on 21 January 2021.
