The beauty and brilliance of this album is evident in its title. Standing on the Shoulders of Giants is Metaform acknowledging the incredible source material he has gathered to create an album that embraces drum n bass (Sunday), down-tempo escapades(Love and Loss), classic breaks (Heaven Can Wait) and soulful melodies (Bubblegum) while maintaining an elastic energy throughout.
This project has a unique personality. It is inviting but that invitation will be met with extreme excitement for music savants as they hear and marvel at the ways Metaform has integrated classic material in a whole new way. Layering his compositions with samples from multiple genres, Metaform takes the listener on audible journey that few other producers are capable. What distinguishes him and this project from so many others that are similar is that Metaform maintains the soul of all his samples in his incorporation of them, so he isn’t just using a loop for nostalgia or create an effect a familiarity but is building upon the groundwork of these giants to create something new and exciting that will be remembered on its own merit.
