‘Beautiful Rain’ is a great song from an 18 year-old from South London called Jude Woodhead and that is a mighty impressive feat you’ll admit, once you press play. Woodhead is a classically-trained trumpet player and an autodidactic pianist and drummer. He’s put that experience to good use on this song, along with his dad’s records and a few years of musicianship.
The song has African vocal samples (his dad’s Congolese and South African records?) and a soft glowing electronic shimmer (inspired by Four Tet) that combines to gorgeous and hypnotic effect. It’s a free download for the price of your email.
