Is it possibly for a song to be bouncy and melancholic at the same time? SKG says yes. The Italian producer recently delivered just such a track via Hegemon Select titled "Daylight" featuring Tom Norton.
"Daylight" pairs unlikely elements. Norton's crisp vocal rings out for a couple measures accompanied by little more than a wavering synth, but then it's counterbalanced by a warped and wonky bass line. A guitar riff at the breakdown communicates more with a sparse smattering of notes than a sweeping solo seemingly could, tying the whole of the arrangement together effectively.
SKG - whose real name is Mattia Masciari - was born in Catanzaro, Italy. He broke through in 2011 with a remix of ''Ritorno a Casa'' by Tormento and Lefty, and released his first solo EP, Under My Roof, in 2016.
