Japanese based producer EeMu comes through with a new release this year simply titled reload. Throughout the 4 tracks on this short but fruitful EP, the talented musician combines soulful samples, quirky electronics and gorgeous keys to complement the heavy, trap and boom-bap influenced beats.
On tracks like “green moon,” there are vocal snippets and beautiful keys that are dominant throughout the track, creating a moody, soulful atmosphere that keeps the same exciting energy throughout. “Cold” features a more jazzy tone to the music, whilst being complemented by sweet synths and an 808 drum pattern that gives the track the bounce that makes it really stand out from rest, making it a personal favourite of mine.
Overall EeMu impresses with this release, really showing how and why he is one of the best producers coming out of Japan at the moment. Make sure you check out and listen to reload below via Bandcamp, and don’t forget to support!
