Over the years, the Melbourne producer has proven she can navigate a vast spectrum of music genres while keeping production values consistently high. However, if one thing should be the conductive line between her productions, it would probably be her elegant taste for atmospheric textures, and sophistication. Spring reflects this idea. She explains: “I had a couple of months off work in early 2021 and made a tonne of music. I found I was changing my taste through the lockdown, and these two tracks represent that. “
The first track on her EP, “Spring”, is a colourfully mellow bouquet oscillating between electronica, breaks, ambient and trip-hop. An electronic lullaby of sorts, radiating a combination of vaporous textures and meticulous drum programming – an invitation to contemplation.
“Laying Low”, the second track of the EP, takes an entirely different approach – an uncompromisingly acidic piece composed on top of broken technoid rhythms, creating a foggy atmosphere finely calibrated for sweaty dance floors.
These two vignettes constitute a complex yet delightful treat for the ears. In that sense, Spring EP is nothing if not transportive.
