Fit of Body - Far From The Rhythm

Review

Far From The Rhythm by Fit of Body

Electronic Pop with a House bent

In less than half an hour, the second album from Atlanta-based producer Ryan Parks, aka Fit of Body, packs in ten tracks of deliriously good electronic Pop with a House bent. If this artist is new to you, then a useful point of reference could be Galcher Lustwerk, not that Parks sounds much like the Ghostly artist, it’s just that they share a certain je ne sais quoi in their lazy/hazy, lo-fi, spoken-word style of vocal delivery. (Parks actually brings much more melody and charisma to his work.) Contrarily, on After Hours he actually sounds a bit like James Stinson. Resident Advisor described his sound as "Ethereal hip-house" but there no rapping on Far From The Rhythm. Instead we’re treated to delightful saxophone interplay with driving rhythms (on the same tracks) and swollen House beats with sing-along refrains on others, particularly album highlight When We Sleep (ft. Elizabeth Wight). The real beauty is how Parks manages to make it all sound so effortless (just like Lustwerk).
