There’s Chillwave in the air as SynthWave master Jordan F takes on electronica producer Flume, resulting in nothing we were expecting. Flume deliver quite a Lo-Fi, reverb drenched take on electronic music to begin with, and Sleepless, in all it’s incarnations, exemplifies their sound. Jordan takes it to the next level, while still retaining a little of the 80s guru we all know and love.
There’s hints of the Jordan’s SynthWave core in this tracks opening synths, and punchy bassline, but this is washed with the spacey Funk of Chillwave. The result is the best of both worlds. Leaning slightly more toward the Lo-Fi, Jordan wraps us up in waves of hazy synths and ghostly vocal snatches. It’s the most experimental thing that Jordan has released to date, and we’re loving it. When a producer like Jordan F becomes comfortable enough with himself, and his talents, to really indulge himself, beautiful things happen.
Flume’s Sleepless is out now.
