San Francisco-by-way-of-Portland beatmaker Devonwho recently unleashed seven tracks via Bandcamp. The songs are, as he says, "a few things from my live set that I decided to let go this summer." The lead track from Perfect Strangers Vol. 1, "Fronteras" draws on the kinds of blazed vibes Devonwho concocts so well; its glossy synth sweeps and fluttering, funk-influenced bassline matching with a quietly clattering beat as the producer reaches for a groovy state of nirvana. A second volume of the Perfect Strangers series should be on its way later this summer, preceding the release of an LP which Devonwho has said should arrive via All-City this fall.
