Semi Precious is the alias of Southeast London based Guy Baron, a singer-producer whose music creates an intricate sonic landscape in the world of experimental pop music.
A graduate from Goldsmiths University, Baron’s work is at once soothing and remote, and presents its bittersweet, multilayered nature as it unfolds.
Semi Precious’ recent, debut album Ultimate Lounge (2016) is possibly his most ambitious work to date. Reading more like the name of a Café Del Mar compilation than an intricate and deeply subversive electronic work, this concept LP sees the producer experimenting with fragmented library samples culled from often overlooked genres like chill-out and easy listening to create an unsettling yet deeply alluring utopia.
Sophomore EP When We Talk (2015) presented an off-kilter, ethereal sound and saw Semi Precious collaborating with electronic music artist Matthew Herbert, with tracks like Framing Words being referred to as 'celestial pop suspended and spinning in a dark and lonely bedroom' (i-D).
The first and self-titled Semi Precious EP (2014) showcased Baron's distinctive approach to music sampling and songwriting, with a collection of collage-like, miniature tracks that have been said to comprise ‘a six track EP of subtly dislocating beauty’ (The Guardian).
