It is easy to cloud the blissful abstracted popiness of this record with the details of its complexities. Itâ??s the way that he produces so playfully, breaking rules that others could not and involving the listener in a way that very few producers are able that hooked us in. It wasnâ??t until the mastering studio that we discovered differently tuned bass drums panned to one side then another, a wash of reverb squeezed hard into only one channel and numerous tiny recorded vocal samples.
The EP opens with a layered crescendo build on clicks and a seething synth sound, 30 seconds of darkness explodes suddenly into pop hits, tempered with sub bass, set against a sampled and repitched vocal. From this point the EP bathes your brain in lush textures, surprising and explosive atmospheres set in unencountered, unearthly spaces, all somehow perfectly set against catchy rolling choruses informed by pop and commercial R&B.
