Stomacher – Sentimental Education (Tropics Remix)
There seems to be a big grey cloud above the head of musical maturation at the minute. The vast majority of production appears to have become a little bit obsessed with what sounds the most deeply darkly sinister or simply what’s got the biggest case of PMT. Don’t get me wrong, it’s all pretty amazing. However, as we now approach the mid-way point of March, I’m hungry for a big gust of wind. For the grumpy cloud to bugger off and give way to warm, back-tingling rays of summertime bliss. Tropics. Aka Chris Ward. The Soft Vision EP I’ve gone back to repeatedly over Winter. He produces purely wonderful music, made for wonderful moments in time. A craftsman of electronically glitching pop hop hip chugged disco washes with cosmic sparkles. Delicious.
