Gilbere Forte’s “1st Floor” is quite an introduction to the hip-hop stylings of the Philadelphia artist. With production by Aislyn of indie band Passion Pit, this release at first sounds as if its a Postal Service or Owl City synthy-pop song – that is, until Gilbere enters the song. His two verses, hidden within the 5 minute ballad, come with an authority and confidence that demand attention and leave you wanting more. At the end of the song, one thing is clear – if Gilbere and his fresh, exciting sound continued to be paired with such outstanding production there is no limit to what this young artist can achieve; in his words,  “open up your eyes when you look in the sky, let my music be your wings when you’re ready to fly.”
