RAMZi: A world of her own design
Like the best electronic music, Phoebé Guillemot’s creations take you very far away indeed. While there may be plenty of genres stuffed full of soundalike producers working to a formula, Guillemot’s work as RAMZi is truly has few counterparts. On paper the description of tropical forest sounds, lopsided percussion, delirious synths and autotuned vocals may sound unfamiliar, or perhaps even unappealing, but such is the unique nature of RAMZi it’s hard to put across just how exotic sounding this music is. While some artists vaguely allude to music from distant lands or even thoughtlessly appropriate sounds from other cultures, Guillemot is busy creating entire worlds of her own design.
