Thriftworks, residing in the Bay Area (San Francisco), creates experimental, glitched out productions with a hip-hop influence.
His latest release, “Terry – D”, takes a more experimental approach in terms sounds, as apposed to “Rainmaker” (2012) which was very hip-hop centric. Thrift’s conceptual choice of track titles, thought provoking sounds accompanied by warped out vocals, ensure that his releases are always able to tell a story. For me, “Daydreams” (track 13) is the coolest track on the album because of the way the synthed out vocals and the bass heavy beat intertwine, supported by the futuristic bleeps and bloops.
I feel it’s safe to say that thrift’s productions are most certainly planetary, probably of the Mars kind.
