Clozee the poetic assassin

 »Much like a fine wine, the newest EP from French producer CloZee gets better with time; each listen unveils one more layer in her deliberate and memorable productions. « The Poetic Assassin » is five tracks which are simultaneously fresh yet nostalgic, providing what could be a stunning soundtrack to a movie which has not yet been made. Chloé Herry showcases her myriad of musical talents at every turn, from live strings and keys to intricate drum programming and glitched out percussion. The progression through the album could be likened to the ebb and flow of the tides, as stirring melodies fluidly give way to captivating basslines before returning into familiar emotive territory. »

a3604034821_10

Coming in hot is Mike Gao’s Quadruple Entendre, which is the official follow up to Beta World Peace. The master of eclectic and progressive beats goes where a majority of beatsmiths is afraid to go. Throughout Quadruple Entendre, you’ll experience Gao’s complicated layering which emphasizes the harmony between chaos and organization. He also takes dynamic looping to the next level by utilizing unorthodox song structure, that is highlighted among the many effects that pulsate in and out of each song. Quadruple Entendre is full of attitude, so tighten your jimmies. Most of the beats are on the quick-fire status, though each is a powerful straight jab. A straight jab right into your musical soul.
