Basenji tones it down a notch for his new single, Chroma

Basenji tones it down a notch for his new single, Chroma

The track comes from Future Classic's forthcoming compilation, which also features Flume, Chrome Sparks and Jagwar Ma.

Considering the success of his debut EP Trackpads, it's pretty safe to say that 2015 was the year of the dog - specifically, the year of the Basenji. The K-9/10 producer was on fire for much of last year, touring the country and beyond between releasing singles from the EP, including the charming debut Petals and Can't Get Enough. Now, the producer has dropped Chroma, following on from Midnight to Monaco's One In A Million as a single exclusive to Future Classic's upcoming label compilation of the same name. Chroma sees Basenji head down a totally different path to Petals and before that, Dawn, with the producer opting for a longer, dynamic piece more expected by label mates Chrome Sparks than Basenji, who typically deals with shorter, more triple j friendly pieces of work. That being said, Chroma is certainly not bad - the flow of light plucks and driving strings amongst soft vocal loops create an authentic, acoustic sound which when layered with a pulsating bass line, combines to form something really quite beautiful.

As previously mentioned, the single comes from Future Classic's One In A Million compilation, which will arrive on March 29 and features already-released singles by label heavyweights Flume, Wafia, Chrome Sparks and Flight Facilities, as well as a couple of never before heard singles and remixes.
