Ghost Hack is a new EP by Toronto-based producer Dabin. The two tracks on the release were inspired by visionary Japanese anime and video games like Ghost in the Shell and Chrono Trigger. The result is a futuristic set of songs that pack a heavy punch, both sonically and emotionally. The title track of the EP is a funky electro number crafted around an epic synth and piano melody. Packed with subtle layering and organic sample work, it manages to strike a perfect balance between driving bass drops and more intimate moments of introspection. For the second track Dabin has orchestrated another one of his all-star collaborations, this time with Manchester-based Feint and long-time partner Daniela Andrade. When You Return plays out like a cross between an old 16-bit RPG soundtrack and frenetic modern Drum & Bass.
