Straight out of Raleigh, North Carolina is Gravity Movement and his latest Esoteric EP.
Esoteric is one of my favourite words. One of its meanings is to “be meant for only the select few who have special knowledge or interest”. In certain ways, music can act like that. That may well have been the inspiration for Gravity Movement’s (real name Eric Bannister). Originally from New York, the producer/part time emcee released The Genesis in 2010 after moving down the East Coast. Taking time out to look after his family, Gravity Movement is back in the music and Esoteric EP is the fruit of his labours. The beats are progressive and elaborate with varying percussion, which is a good thing in an era of hashed trap rhythms.
