Thylacinus returns to Cosmic Elements with his second solo EP which is a smooth jazz and funk inspired three tracker including two west coast hip hop gems, entitled ‘Perceptions EP’.
The opening track ‘Open Your Mind And Realise’ is a warm, soul inspired, thought provoking groove with funk laden beats and leads you into a place that you don’t want to leave; it certainly gets across the message of the EP title. Next up is the hard hitting ‘They Respect Nothing’ which takes you right back to mid 80s L.A with its funk layered infectious late night vibes. Closing the EP is ‘Avenue View’, all puns intended, with a driving bass line and and guitar lick leading up to some smooth soul interludes and completing another fine EP from Thylacinus.
Thylacinus is the alias of Tom Conrad who is currently better known within the realms of house music, however with his early influences of funk, jazz, soul and 80s hip hop it was inevitable he’d take this path at some point. Look out for more singles and an album from Thylacinus over the next few months along with music alongside his friend and top artist Da Funksta (The Old Skool the New Class).
All tracks Written, Arranged and Produced by Thylacinus
