Living the A&R to the fullest, Dairmount worked closely with Nowakowski to further develop his vision and sounds. After sophomore EPs from Art of Tones and Marlow, Room with a View now proudly presents Magenta, Nowakowskis follow up to last years Reframe.
As a colour, magenta represents the artistic union of the energetic red and the introspective violet, which is demonstrated in the 5 different shades of the artist on this EP. Magenta 1 is a light-hearted house banger, built around a sexy disco sample, whereas the vibes of Magenta 2 take us into minor musical territory.
Magenta 3 delivers the very same hypnotizing trademark sounds we were introduced to through Nowakowski first RWAV EP . Magenta 4 represents a deep bounce, with intriguing bleeps and cut-up vocals. Finally Nowakowskis love of Detroit is displayed through the abyssal synths and bouncing beats in Magenta 5.
The Magenta EP displays a sonic portrait of the artist as a young man, its a freshly sounding blueprint of whats to come. The future is bright, the future is magenta.
