Diggin’ This: Yu Su – “Watermelon Woman” (Technicolour Records)
New sonics for September.
Starting with a slinky beat and kaleidoscopic synth cascades, “Watermelon Woman” by Vancouver-via-Kaifeng, China artist and classically trained musician Yu Su steadily progresses into an airy electronic house groover complete with bleep ricochets, bubbling bass, and, of course, a playful flute in homage to the track’s inspiration, Herbie Hancock’s “Watermelon Man.”
Track of the day.
