Sydney-based producer Caravan comes through with an energetic, groove-heavy new EP titled Riviera. Already being a relatively influential name within house and electronic music, the talented producer continued to impress with a 4 track album that is dynamic and infectiously groovy.
With thick synths and basslines, the album kicks off “Republique,” a funky start to the album, with a heavy beat and percussion that keeps the track engaging and immersive. The synths are the dominant feature of this record, with a wonderful and catchy melody that just keeps developing throughout the track. “Le Suquet” is another smooth track, with electronic synths and effects swirling throughout the track, also accompanied by an infectious, groovy beat. “Croisette” is the most dynamic track on here, with dynamic drum patterns that bring this track to life. The heavy beat and claps on “Palm Beach” bring so much heavy funk, with swirling, acid-house inspired synths, as well as other percussion and electronic effects throughout. It’s the most hip-hop inspired track of all of them, just due to the thumping beat that drives the track forward. It’s an excellent way to end an engaging, somewhat hypnotic project.
