Premiere: Gab Rhome – Hidden – Dancing Astronaut
Southern California deep house authority Sol Selectas has invited a new artist into its fold: Gab Rhome. The burgeoning talent has spent the better part of 2018 expanding his influence by way of touring, with a few choice releases on All Day I Dream, Natura Sonoris, and Bar 25. Given his increasingly ethereal, tuned-down aesthetic, Rhome is a perfect fit for Sol Selectas —and he backs this with a well-rounded EP, La Maison.
Each of the EP’s three tracks toys around with symbolism and subtlety. In “Hidden’s” case, one must listen carefully to uncover the song’s classic structure, hidden under a thin house veil. A rustic feeling is present throughout, manifested through warm guitar riffs and hypnotic vocals. This organic nature makes it easy for anyone to connect with the music, and works its listeners into a complete state of trance.
Gab Rhome would do well to play “Hidden” during his upcoming set at All Day I Dream’s annual New Year’s event in Los Angeles, taking place in Gin Ling Way on December 29. More information and tickets to the event here.
