Tay Sean is an experimental hip-hop producer and vocalist from Rainier Beach, Seattle, WA.
The music is sonic hypnagogia, with lyrics oscillating between the lucid and the literal over a bed of moon-bathed melodies and unorthodox rhythms.
Drawing on elements of jazz fusion, boogie and R&B, he also cites black liberation movements, psychedelic drugs and meditation among his influences.
Tay Sean is a member of electronic hip-hop band Kingdom Crumbs, and keyboardist on THEESatisfaction’s 2015 release EarthEE. His self-produced debut solo album Leavings drops Summer 2016.
