about

Although LA-based beatsmith A Sol Mechanic (aka David Blazer) is a somewhat recent member of the Stereocure family, his creativity and enthusiasm for building a sense of community among local musicians has been a strong presence over the past few years. His solemn yet soaring track on our second sampler compilation is an apt example of the musical depth that he is capable of, but a full-length album is required to really understand the myriad of sonic stirrings and sensations that he can conjure. That’s why we are delighted to present “Emotion Terrace,” A Sol Mechanic’s debut record as a part of the Stereocure community. There is certainly a sense of familiarity to the music on this album; the beats often draw on many of the propulsive sounds that have been driving instrumental hip-hop on the west coast during the past decade. But what sets A Sol’s music apart and really makes it his own is the complexity that accompanies its powerful façade. From angelic choirs to strings brimming with equal parts optimism and melancholy, the record runs us through a spectrum of human feeling from the comfortable perspective of buttery samples dripped over pumping bass. With the raw directness of a beat tape and the refined craft of a polished album, “Emotion Terrace” delivers a layered experience that satisfies the listener on multiple levels, submersing the ears while inviting the soul to listen.
