Favorite ThisPremiere Week Culminates With Soul Controller

Published: April 21, 2011

As Premiere Week wraps up on The Untz, we close with a phenomenal young producer out of Boston.  Jonathan Gogel, a.k.a Soul Controller, has been producing instrumental tracks for MCs for a time, but is now stepping out on his own with a fully realized style.  Matching classic samples and cuts with futuristic beats and emotive melodic washes, Gogel has already captured the mature sound of a seasoned veteran.

Today's track is not exactly a premiere, it has been up for a couple of months on Soul Controller's SoundCloud account under his Soul Searching EP. If you're going to snatch Nina Simone's vox, you better have the class and gusto embodied by one of the nation's top songstresses of all time.  "I Ain't Lying" is gritty, but graceful, matching Simone's pained yells with heavy synth runs and a bubbling bass.  The production quality is out of control, but I guess, not out of reach for Soul Controller.  Keep your eyes peeled for this guy...
