It takes a lot to excite me, especially since electronic music is such a fickle lover. She can take you to new places, shower you with all her attention, and offer more gifts than you can possible bare. Or she can lie there- distant and cold. You could say that music and I haven’t been talking much lately.
That changed this morning, when an EP arrived in my inbox and hit me so hard, it was like an arrow piercing through mediocrity. You could say it succeeds by opposing the latest trends. It’s under-produced, minimalist, ambient, and although there’s a drop, it’s not the kind you would expect. But it would be an injustice to refer to the EP as simply a reaction to popular EDM.
‘As it was’ by IamTrip is a beautifully crafted journey through psychedelic and ambient glitch. It also confuses the living hell out of me, which is an excellent sign. I want to bask in its epic post-rock sound, mellow out to its chiller side, and dance to its beats- all within four tracks. I’ve been enjoying ‘As it was’ immensely and hope you enjoy it too.
