With well-received previous appearances on respected outlets such as Espacio Cielo, Emerald & Doreen, Quixotical, Bonkers, and Ninefont, Madrid-based producer Stylic makes his debut on the super cool label Paisley Dark – managed by our dear John Paynter (SXDNS123) – with another incursion into the dark realm: The “PoPoPoPom” EP (yeah, we also loved the name) delivers three well-constructed originals and adds another interesting layer of colours on the growing sound kaleidoscope of the British platform.
With a “hypnotic slow-mo, Weatherall-esque” bearing, the release reminds us that there are other kinds of bangers and peak-time beasts in times of (extremely) fast-paced bangers and peak-time beasts. Ranging from 097 to 111 BPM, the message here is to lose yourself to dance and savour the moment… but not so fast.
Premiered here, “Like This” is an immersive dive into the deliciousness of the downtempo world. Pure bliss triggered by trippy distorted leads, groovy vocal stabs/hooks, siren-like riffs, and percussive elements, resulting in an intricate and shake-your-booty-but-in-slow-motion masterpiece.
You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Bandcamp page of the label.
