Mr. Stee – “Out There”

Vancouver-based instrumental hip-hop artist Mr. Stee – the alias of Stefan Raupach – impresses mightily on his track “Out There”, where a funky guitar twang works suavely over pitch-fluctuating vocal samples and symphonic flourishes. Raupach has almost two decades worth of guitar-playing experience, and here he has melded it nicely with hip-hop and electronic production. His stylistic arsenal sits somewhere between the relaxing electronic tones of Boards of Canada and funk-laden electronica of Massive Attack, with Silent Movie coming to mind as well. Either way, this is a project packed with mood and suaveness; I’ll be keeping an eye on Mr. Stee for sure.
