City Lights is a 19 year old producer of dreamy instrumental Hip-Hop music. The inspiration for his debut album came from his favorite season of the year: winter. By no means this implies the music on the CD sounds cold and empty. On the contrary; City Lights’ goal while creating “Winter All Year” was to showcase as many of his musical facets as possible.
The result is a diverse, 10-tracks counting album, on which the listener is taken on a melodic trip through the mind of City Lights. From eerie synths that seem to cut through your eardrum back into a warm bath of sweet melodies. All facets of City Lights’ vision of music are represented, and of course supported by his trademark drums and bouncy bass lines.
On “Winter All Year” the Dutch producer was assisted by the experienced musicians Darin Guermonprez (known for his work with D.A.C.) and Bobby Littlejohn (E-Ville Media). “Winter All Year” marks the start of City Lights’ musical career and gives a good impression of what, as far as he’s concerned, he will be making for the rest of his life: atmospherical soundscapes, combined with raw and aggressive elements.
