Over the last few months Australian producer re:abel has given us two mesmerizing aural treats with ‘Carbonceramics’ and ‘Concentrate’, while also making promise of a three-track ep headed our way soon. That ep is titled “Otherside”, and it is being released this week alongside its previously unheard title-track, on which he says…
“The title track introduces a gentler, more nuanced side to my production. Distant vocals and soft percs build under synth hits and lush pads, building to an eventual introduction of sub-bass, thumping kick and fluttering arpeggio sequences, with the chopped, reverb soaked vocals driving the track throughout.” ~ re:abel
When he began working on this ep, re:abel set himself the goal of creating three songs that represents a certain element that drives him to make music. He wanted each of them to have a different overall vibe and mood while at the same time making us feeling a variety of different emotions.
“‘With this latest EP, I tried to create three tracks that each represent an element of what drives me to write music. Each of the three songs has a slightly different mood, but still remain cohesive with each other and firmly planted in the emotional electronic / UK-influenced dance field – music that leaves you feeling a melting pot of different feelings – both wistfully melancholic, yet full of inspiration and hope.” ~ re:abel
