A new artist making his Meanwhile Horizons debut, Covsky opens his account for the GMJ and Matter led imprint, with the 3-track "Space Walk".

Hailing from the New South Wales capital, Sam Cooke has acquired an impressive reputation in a short space of time with his Covsky production moniker. Marking his first release with an appearance on 3rd Avenue's "Three of a Kind #05" in July 2020, productions signed to Forward Music, Future Avenue and Massive Harmony Records followed before "Whole 9" featured on Steve Marx and Tripswitch's onedotsixtwo in December 2021.

Now the Australian boasts another first with three new original tracks on Meanwhile Horizons. The "Space Walk" title track is a beautifully imagined piece that rolls effortlessly along with its organic sounding percussive groove, before glassy synth motifs drift across the mid-range. Accompanied by ethereal vocal phrases, a series of spoken astronaut samples add to the overall sonic ambience and cadence. Combining with filtered arpeggio at the breakdown and into the third movement the track builds to a satisfying and impressive finale.

The relaxed rhythmic backdrop continues into "Greener Pastures" as a deep bass groove adds weight and subtle dancefloor dynamism. Evolving easily, a chorus of complementary synth phrases add a gloriously emotive chord progression. Playing off each other, their immaculate placement creates a sublime arrangement that reaches out over the sonic horizon with delicately wavering oscillator pitch to add further intrigue. The result is a beautifully imagined array of melodic patterns.

The final piece finds a heavy beat and ticking hi-hat pattern take up the mantle of "Holding On". A delicate wood block percussion plays out across the top line as a meticulously programmed bassline creates a head-shaking groove. A trademark collection of analogue synth layers makes their presence felt before an inspiring string sequence weaves a magical path at the breakdown and into the second half. White-noise risers and searing free-form lead then add to the aural collage with striking effect.

A confident and assured debut, Covsky ventures out into the deep with an inspiring "Space Walk".
