If you haven’t heard already the electronic splendor surrounding Mimosa you should consider changing energy supplier. This young guy from America’s West Coast conjures melodic sounds with down right dirty baselines inducing both excitement and surprise.
Signed to the San Francisco’s premiere dubstep and glitch centric label Muti Music ,MiMOSA is taking the idea of post dubstep to a new level, swimming in the best bits of the genre while moving effortlessly joining other leftfield brackets like glitch hop and experimental hip hop. Another description to his music is his own, crunk-step dub hop for the soul. On this his newest album Silver Lining, there’s even glances of drum n bass with jungle throw back ‘DETOUR’ illustrating his seemly limitless reach.
And he isn’t that sort of bedroom producer either. A big traveller and live performer his list of tour dates run so long they had to turn the page landscape on printing. He has shared the stage with dub step authoritarians Benga, Skream, Rusko, along with Glitch Mob, Pretty Lights, Bassnectar and Flying Lotus to name but a sprinkle and Mary Ann Hobbs (BBC) has been a big fan since before when. So it’s this well deserved hype and producer socialising that has notably had a profound effect on his inability to be pigeon holed.
Silver Lining is a thoroughly appealing. A aural exploration into base and high pitch sounds, it even drifts into euphoric futuristic funk.
‘Badlands’ saxophone and squealing siren play perfect warning to the tracks deep approaching baseline while pensive aqua like ‘When We learn’ has to be an immediate favourite for anyone with a pulse.
The beautiful ‘sideways’ rounds of a hearty release that you don’t see that often.
