Newcomer The Schmidt just released his debut EP, titled The Beginning–a three-track EP including two originals as well as a remix of Serena Ryder’s Stompa. Emerging from the expansive musical landscape of San Francisco, The Schmidt has put together an EP that draws inspiration from The City by blending several musical styles.
The Schmidt’s style can be described as a melodic electro sound that combines electro house sounds with that of nu disco-inspired synths and pianos. It’s an interesting blend of what can sometimes be the harsh, in-your-face sounds of electro with the more danceable, disco-infused sounds. The Schmidt has been able to combine these two differing styles to create a cohesive sound that can be heard throughout the EP.
