Med School break the mould with a stunning single by Bop, a new breed of producer intent on re-writing the rulebook with an intoxicating ice-cold sound; embracing influences from deep techno and minimalist dubstep right through to IDM, electronica and ambient drum & bass.
Dedicated to his pug named Booyaka, the beautiful “Song About My Dog” introduces itself with deep resonating keys evoking the feeling of vast spaciousness, until crisp 808 beats caress the music forward, underpinned by warm bass and soothing pads. The glitch-fuelled charm of “Random Thoughts” provides more emotive musicality on the flip with the same attention to detail and exquisite dynamics. Some might call it drum & bass, but this is simply electronic music at its absolute finest. The intricacies of these tracks are appropriately packaged with exclusive hand drawn artwork, a first for Med School.
At the tender age of 19, the depth and elegance of Bop‘s music is truly astonishing and despite only a handful of releases there’s already plenty of heavyweight support for his music. Instra:mental & D-Bridge (Autonomic Podcast), Marcus Intalex (Soul:ution Radio), London Elektricity (Hospital Podcast), Nerm (BBC Radio 1), Hospital Radio (Kiss FM), Flight, Lynx & Alix Perez (Forward Focus Radio on Kiss FM), Nu:Tone, Code (Subtle Audio Radio), Electrosoul System and Warm Communications.
Med School continues to push the envelope for truly forward thinking experimental music beyond the constraints of the dancefloor. Keep your eyes peeled as the momentum builds towards Bop‘s debut album in the summer, featuring even more electronic delicacies from Russia’s finest.
