For his first single of the year, 20 year old RYD’s (Ryan Downie) latest song is the minimal beauty titled, Simple Place To Be. To tie in the name, the production is gentle with delicate kicks and warping, each layer melting beneath his dreamy falsetto and pitched down vocals. With the softest of touches, the London based producer creates a melancholic soundscape for you to sink into and get lost in for hours. When you’re done with this one, listen to his first release for a lush water painting of ambient sounds.
