The song “Jerf (Ft. Reza Kashi & Negar Nik Persian Lounge Music in 432Hz)” by Art Tawanghar is another flavor to a unique vision. He is not joking around when he says “lounge music.” This seriously feels like something you would want to want to listen to to enter a state of utter relaxation and bliss. The thing that I loved about this song is that it works in multiple ways.
Is this the type of song that would sound great in the background when perhaps getting a massage or relaxing in a day spa? Yes, it would. That being said it’s a song where you can delve into the details with a nice pair of headphones. If you aren’t familiar with Art Tawanghar, he layers his music but it’s never too much or sounds forced. The elements all work in unison and “Jerf (Ft. Reza Kashi & Negar Nik Persian Lounge Music in 432Hz)” is no exception.
The song starts with some jazzy guitar, percussion elements, pads, atmosphere and more trickling in. You can hear the Persian influence and the ascending elements that sound a bit like a harp makes the song sound ephemeral and dream-like.
The introduction and dissipation of sounds is so seamless you might not even notice them if you aren't paying attention. Take for example the ghost like vocals melodies which disappear almost as soon as they appear.
The song does have somewhat of a crescendo with more focused melodies coming in around the five-minute mark. This song is like a musical collage that refuses to remain static. It could be my favorite of his that I’ve heard. I also thought this style comes closer to sounding similar to an artist like Four Tet and Prefuse 73 both of whom I’ve listened to for almost twenty years. Two thumbs up.
