Corbin Canvas may not be a name many of us are familiar with over here in the UK, but without doubt, the one-machine music machine will soon be infiltrating our airwaves and colouring our daily soundtracks. Based overseas in the thriving musical hub of New York, the multi-instrumentalist’s fresh album ‘Jive Jive’ is swimming in soulful futuristic textures and rife with a dynamic lyricism that only a pioneer of the underground avant-garde can provide. Corbin Canvas genre-fusing style results in an album oozing with funky retro-futuristic undercurrents, all with Corbin’s smoothly charismatic vocals melting over the top.
The albums premiere track ‘Jive Turkey’ is a colourful canvas of expertly manipulated samples convening on a beat you can’t help but vibe to. With a Kaytranada essence (though, I would argue this is better) running through the soulful house atmosphere, Canvas expands on a canon of house musicians whilst utilising his flare for modern musical technology, elevating each song to its own all-encompassing soundscape. ‘Milk & Honey’ flexes Corbin Canvas’ effortlessly velvety vocals, riding a heavy synth soundscape. Canvas showcases the silky-smooth vocal line that inaugurates him as a vital force in the up and coming music scene. ‘Jive Jive’ is a seven-track journey through Corbin Canvas’ refreshing musical innovation and unique vocal presence. With his latest release ‘Tools’ showcasing a darker side to Canvas’s versatile repertoire,
Corbin Canvas is proving to be an unstoppable force as he sets out to enlighten the mainstream with a retro-futurism deep-rooted within ‘Jive Jive,’ - and if you aren’t jiving hard when Corbin Canvas comes on, you need to get your ears checked.
