There's been a lot of buzz going around about a Stockholm based producer named iSHi lately. Collaborations with rappers like Pusha T, Tine Tempah, Raekown, and Kardinal Offishall lined his Spring Pieces mixtape, along with a handful of gorgeous vocal appearances. With his most recent work, we witness that music come to life with a 13-minute delivery of poignant visual media.
In many ways, his dark approach to music and love for visuals reminds us of Woodkid, and we have high hopes for the future of this project. The producer and songwriter is bringing something different to the table than many Swedish pop artists, straying towards the black and white aesthetic and darker style in a similar vein to Lykke Li.
His name is also starting to pop up more in the electronic realm lately, already remixing fellow Swedish artists like Avicii and Steve Angello, and having his track "Push It" taken on by Cazzette. In his Spring Pieces Short Film, we get a balance. Certain songs gear towards a heavy Gesaffelstein sound, while others are much more ambient and sway towards the tranquil approach.
It's an emotional trip through contrasting visceral scenes, each coming together to tell a full story that will be interpreted by everyone a little different. Watch the video below, and download the Spring Pieces mixtape if you haven't already.
