Slime welcomes back to the label Russian producer Colorhythm. Establishing his signature sound on last year’s release ‘Azure’, here he returns with another set of tracks that defy genre parameters. Extrapolating the heavyweight framework of dubstep and mixing in the best elements of garage, house along with a dash of R&B, the results are always smooth but never saccharine.
‘Sweetheart’ rolls in on soft chords and a narcotic house beat before soaring into the stratosphere with a diva vocal and cascading melodies, washing over your senses like a warm ray of sunshine.
‘Voyage’ takes a step back on the tempo from the former, with an atmospheric opening before the autonomic beat unfolds over soulful keys, sultry vocals and shimmering chords.
On the remix tip, it’s a family affair with label-mates BSN Posse and DYP on the buttons. The Spanish production duo take the lead track and mutates it into a snaking, dub-infused monster full of snapping percussion and melodic flourishes. Meanwhile, the Australian producer flips it into a sparkling house gem, bringing the soulful vocal to the fore and laying it over a lush, swinging beat.
