Living life like a typical Soundcloud junkie, I am constantly presented with new stuff, most of which is all equally impressive. But once in a while you stumble upon something that sticks out in a way that is hard to rationalise. Sometimes, right from the moment you start a track, in an almost magical moment, you know that something is extraordinary. This fresh EP from the American producer Steven Deblat is such an example.
‘Helicopter Blues’ is an absolutely unique, dark-flavoured mix of vapor/cloud/alter-trap and psychedelic dubstep, which even includes elements of ambient-metal. As you all know, I am a huge fan of vapor trap. I’ve been following this scene for a little while now and, no matter how much it blows my mind, sometimes it seems to get a bit saturated, using the same futuristic architecture-animation pads, 90s mall-lounge samples and crystal-bright drums over and over again. But this EP opens a whole new knew avant-garde sound that definitely calls for furhter exploration!
