A Musician On A Mission, Navid Izadi Has Quickly Risen From A San Francisco Club Kid To Buzzing New One To Watch. Rolling As A Dj, Singer And Rapper (but Rarely Over Rap Beats), And Producing Music That Effortlessly Weaves Between Influences, His Talents Are Being Drafted In And Championed By A Range Of Industry Heavyweights.
Aside from recent andupcoming vocal features for major leaguers like Deniz Kurtel, Soul Clap and close friends PillowTalk, the past year has also seen Navid remix the likes of Pezzner and Miguel Migs. The future holds much more with several EPs lined up for the “crew love” label family (Wolf + Lamb and the forthcoming Soul Clap Records) as well as a full-length album that will see the young Renaissance man stretching his musical legs far and wide On the sublime debut EP for Double Standard Records, A-side ‘Ain’t Got The Time’ pays homage to trippy, proto electronics but with Navid’s forward-thinking attitude. Led by a snaking analogue bassline and an undeniable vocal hook, ‘Ain’t Got The Time’ shows Navid as an immaculate producer who brings real musicality with layer upon layer of intricate melody. A2 ‘Lost In The Fold’ gets a little deeper with more warm soft synths for an epic early morning set. Fast rising San Francisco trio PillowTalk enter on the flip with mellow trip ‘Too Long’, injecting the EP with Ryan William’s silky smooth vocals atop Navid’s dream-like vocoder.’On My Mind’ delves into pools of warm pads and soft beats while second PillowTalk collaboration ‘Follow The Leader’ develops from a mood heavy jam featuring Navid’s own brand of rap, then flips up to Sammy D’s sweetened vocal melody dusting over the languid percussive roll.
