Young producers from Finland, Askel (Juho Kavasto) and Elere (Sainey Gibba) have absolutely smashed it out the park with their debut single. Having met only age 11, the two brought their musical creativity together and started producing on Fruity Loops in 2007: via their parents’ computers. From the small snowy town of Tampere, the pair of old friends deliver cleverly crafted liquid with a mastery akin to that of Med School legend Etherwood.
Last Leaves eases us in with warm, chiming bells and a general sense of calm. Plucks and pops of synth melt into ethereal vocals as growing percussion builds energy, into a cliff hanger drop that does anything but disappoint.
Polar Response, is a moody landscape of surging synths and suspense. The drop delivers their blend of progressive liquid and deep sub bass provides the foundation to a rolling melody, in a more drawn out fashion.
Hot off his debut EP, golden boy Monika delivers a new take on the title track with just a touch more oomph, demonstrating his clear knowledge and love of breaks. A track that’s as at home on dancefloors as it is in the headphones.
