chapter 33 – ‘popsicles’
hello, the solar team is speaking. we’re back with a new chapter of the flamboyant five series (number 33, in words thirty-three). so, we’ve been doing our typical things during the last week: yoga, meditation, artist work, poems, be united with the world, inhale & exhale the sole air of a metropolis. lest, we did forget how hot the weather can be while living in a big city. same does apply with the coldness. so, we’ve been searching for a great spot for popsicles, to cool ourselves down and concentrate on the essential thing: finishing up this article. so, let us make the transition from the intro to the bassline, ehrm, main part of 33:
1.Sofie Letitre – Slip
‘slip’ is a song that deserved to be a part of our roster. the artist who composed and sang on the track, is the utrecht based indie electronic trio ‘sofie letitre’. ‘sofie’, aka ferdy van der singel,
cees bruinsma & nicky hustinx – recently released a two single extended play named ‘bare’ on ‘division recordings’. these two tracks are completed by two remixes from artists such as ‘steelan’ & ‘jai tee’. we’d like to pick the song named ‘slip’. that track is available as a freebie, albeit you should actually purchase the whole single-ep, because (let us be blunt) it’s pure fire. to talk more about the song structure: an indie-based electro record, which has also influences from ambient, classic music. the whole scenery & setting has been perfectly matched together. the produced atmos can be meticulously described as ‘eerie pulchritude’, eerie due its mystical touch & pulchritude due its unique sound of beauty. be sure to check all the upcoming news from these guys, give a follow and a hug.
2.An &. – Kasunagi
‘kasunagi’ is the next one we’d like to talk about. we had the pleasure that the artist recently did hit us up with a link to an other track: so we did what we had to do, go through the whole discography and pick one. well who is the artist? his name is ‘an &.’, a morocco based producer, who likes to write unique melodies. ‘an &.’, aka ahmed nakrati, is the first producer we ever featured from the beautiful & mystical place of morocco. to speak a little bit about the track we did put on this chapter: ‘kasunagi’ stands for the DNA of ‘an &.’, its uncanny & yet catchy melodies combined with trenchant drums & kicks create a warm area of sounding. the song definitely presents the path ‘an &.’ is currently going – to experiment with melodies, rhythms from all over the world & put them in one song. we’d like to say, to give him a like, a follow and be assured to check his updates.
3. The Masks – Save Me
next song, and we have a new feature from the london-based duo ‘the masks’. a new feature? yep. the last time we mentioned this passionate group was nearly 4 months ago, with their reinterpretation of a prince record (in this case: ‘ i wanna be your lover’). since then, we have been following their path, with releases such as ‘say goodbye’ or ‘lost’. this time, we’d like to talk about their newest record named ‘save me’. the track is something to chill, enjoy the moment & coevally face the feeling of chagrin. with the beginning of the song: a piano enters the stage, followed by an eerie-yet-catchy female voice & significant drums. a solid piece of production, a downtempo track, that
should bring more fans & more ways to share it with the audience. be sure, to check the following releases and give them a like.
4. Glxy – Motionless
‘motionless’ is a song by hungarian-based producer ‘glxy’ that was recently released as a part of the anticipated extended play ‘departure’ (available on his bandcamp for a fee of three dollars). we have yet here another trenchant fuse of ambient with garage music, doesn’t matter whether we’re talking about the impeccable set of kicks, the flawless snares or the uncanny acapellas. ‘motionless’ is a song that let you think of things from the past, the present or the future. its bedazzled sounding is what rivets you on your seat, an instant paralyzation can occur. you can definitely catch the meaning of the song, better said feel it, like having the same thoughts, the same emotions the artist had while producing it. be sure to check the whole ep, embrace the moment & let the music go through you.
5. Ezra – Totoro (feat. Woodzsthlm)
‘totoro’ is the last track we’re going to talk about. the song was produced by us based ‘ezra’ & stockholm based producer ‘woodzsthlhm’. to talk a little bit about the artists: mister ‘ezra’ comes straight from long beach, california. his productions stands for trap music, future bass & experimental music. his swedish colleague ‘woodzsthlm’ does have the same way of thinking: by creating atmospheric trap instrumentals, fused with catchy melody-compositions which are going to be in your eardrums for a while. to talk a little bit about the featured song: the track starts with a composition of different synths fused to create a melo-cluster, followed by a pile of trenchant kicks, drums & snares. ‘totoro’ is available as a freebie ezra’s bandcamp. we’re really pleased that we have found these great artists & stocked for their future releases.
