Josef Salvat – “Every Night”
Pairs Well With…James Blake, Gotye, Rhye
Quality over quantity: since coming out of the music woodwork about a year ago, Josef Salvat has produced just three tracks. While it’s hard to determine the true breadth of an artist on twelve minutes of music, there is definitely something to be said for Salvat’s delicate touch throughout “This Life”, “Hustler” and his latest, “Every Night”. At the heart of this music is soul, whether it’s through a breezy melody pulled from a Motown record (“Every Night”) or the starkness of an empty bedroom (“Hustler”). Combine that with synthesized waves of sonic majestry and a amazing vocal range from baritone to falsetto - you get to start to understand why Salvat should be an artist-to-watch in 2014. It’s amazing to see these artists who’ve grown up on Dr. Dre and Oasis at the same time (or even younger than that) and can let opposing forces blend seamlessly into something boldly new.
