LOFI PRODUCER-MUSICIAN SHARES DEBUT ALBUM ‘LET’S TAKE A TRIP’
December 2, 2022 BY Jason Currell
Today, New York-based producer and lofi craftsman Chris Mazuera shares his latest album, the ten-track Let’s Take A Trip via Nettwerk. The multi-instrumentalist released six singles leading up to the project, which received adds to Spotify’s chill lofi study beats playlist and Apple Music editorials such as ‘SLEEP’ and ‘LoFi Jazz – Global.’
Mazuera is most known for his collaborative work, but Let’s Take a Trip is a solo album through and through. The project highlights not only his guitar skills but his beat making abilities, ranging from old-school boom-bap to more melodic, guitar-driven jazzhop.
“The album represents to me the musical growth that I’ve had,” says Mazuera, “more specifically in the last two years. I’ve learned better how to mold together all my different influences into a sound that’s more uniquely mine.”
The project’s emphasis on guitar solos is personal to Mazuera, calling back to his musical introduction to New York City. “I would busk in Grand Central soloing over the blues for hours,” he recalls.
From start to finish, Let’s Take A Trip truly is a trip. Find the project at digital retailers here: https://chrismazuera.ffm.to/letstakeatrip.
