Kosie – “Ghost in Me” (feat. Stan Taylor)
“Ghost in Me” is a captivating effort from Los Angeles multi-instrumentalist Alekos “Kosie” Syropoulos, who has played with the likes of Anderson .Paak (saxophone on “King James), Mac Miller, and Vulfpeck. His aesthetic is fond of atmospheric synth tones, woodwinds, and vibrant rhythms, with an eclectic stylistic reach touching on jazz, hip-hop, funk, and pop. This particular track features the soulful vocals of Stan Taylor, who is a consuming force throughout. Even when Taylor’s vocals aren’t present, Kosie continues to flex his atmospheric, instrumental chops — evident particularly with the excellent 01:03 interlude, which sounds enjoyably submerged in a nostalgic electro-funk aquatic paradise. The “ghost in me,” snappy vocal hook follows with seamless delight. “Ghost in Me” is quality material.
“Ghost in Me” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of April 2019’ Spotify playlist.
The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Indie Funk and Soul.
