"The Asylum" represents the flight, the period during which one becomes absorbed in the travel. Caine achieves this using ambient IDM undertones marked by cosmic synths and a steady, penetrative snare. "The Rebel" is the ride through the night, a feeling provided by deep basslines and walls of melodic chords. On "Flanja," Caine suddenly moves into a tribal setting. Hints of energized world percussion and punchy church organs accompany a deep bassline that can be felt through the surrounding environment. "Bloom" is the rallying point. While it contains many of the cosmic, IDM-driven undertones of The Asylum, the staccato low notes delivers a fresh rush of energy to the floor, getting everyone to move in unison.
Bloom EP, out on Calgary's Substation Recordings, is another testament to Caine's relentless drive as a producer. The journey-centred style showcases the emerging direction of the city's dance floor visionaries.
