Orlando beatsmith JSHIH is on his way up. Producing a solid blend of trance, IDM, and chill-wave, JSHIH matches syncopated glitch-hop rhythms with cathedral hall vocals, or balances dirty, aggressive bass lines with warm synth pads. Slow evolutions in atmosphere and casually delicate song-crafting make for some extremely memorable moments. Listen to "This, Distant" here. It's probably also important to mention that he has remixed works of R. Kelly and Pariah Carey - and does a real banger. Check out his soundcloud page for the goodies.
