What’s not to like in Rei Brown‘s latest upload ? I wonder. Not much. “Wouldnt it be great” is one hell of a great track unearthed to our ears by Hillydilly.com earlier today. From Japan, Rei Brown encapsulates a whirlwind of emotions and feelings into the tiniest container ever. Just like Tokyo inhabitants would do, fighting for space to live in around the bustling, tiring and overcrowded megalopolis. With the support of fellow musician slash producer named To Be Frank (whom we covered in the past might I add), Rei Brown (formerly known as Raybaboon) crafts a superbly executed project here. One that should easily get you where you’ve been longing to be all week. Filled with cotton clouds, peace, quiet and a relaxing tea concoction to make things run smoother. There’s not much else on the character aside from a well documented Instagram account with plenty of pictures. We can certainly enjoy Brown’s eye for architecture and all things urban. In the meantime, and while we send our investigators down the Google time-trap, please take a minute or 12 to listen to the beauty that is “Wouldnt it be great” and the rest of his work over at his Soundcloud. As well as following his social estates to stay up to date.
Hi, I’m Ben (or Sodwee if you prefer), the owner of this veteran music blog. I was born in 1985 and raised in Paris, France. It's still my hometown by the way. I’m bilingual in English and French. I'm always on the hunt for that new sound. I have amassed a substantial amount of music over the years. My library reflects my eclecticism. I've traveled and lived abroad a fair bit and an avid consumer of culture, from movies, to live concerts.
Today is my birthday, not that it matters at this point — friendly nudge and a cringy wink. What better way to celebrate than to put the spotlight onto the rather intriguing bunch of creative individuals members of the artistic collective QUINZEQUINZE based out of Paris.
