The quiet-achieving Perth producer unleashes a compelling and pristine collection of new material.

Despite the fresh young producer fire that has always flared up around him during his several years in the game, beatmaker Justin Elwin continues to stand his ground in Perth (and further afield) as one of our city's singular talents. Whether he's in Kit Pop or HWLS guise, with each new track or collaboration, and with every live set, Elwin evolves, adapts and stays continually relevant, showcasing the strength of his skill and reminding us why he's achieved career longevity, when so many others who were once of his ilk have now fallen off the map.  

Ever the quiet achiever, it was without much fanfare the other day that Kit Pop released a collection of 20 tracks, POSTEDall produced, mixed and mastered by himself. With POSTED, he's taken the transient hip hop vibes and more menacing, ambient undertones of earlier works like Seams, and lent those sounds a generous amount of light. The diversity within the release is fairly immense - we're presented with chaotic, squelchy industrial bounce in Armeria, then a relaxed slice of 70s-style soulful chill in Must Be Heaven, then something different again via the low-lying trap of Sweaters. 

There's a nice Clams Casino vibe to iYi and Penny Potts - they're well-primed for a melancholy-vocalled Atlanta rapper to lend a few bars to, while other times things are more LA experimental beat scene in feel - BbBbbbyBbler is killer, and will go down well with FlyLo fans. 

Despite the broad sound spectrum traversed, the tracks slide together with ease, and echo each other in pleasant ways. It's a super-pristine collection, with each track more compelling than the last - take the time to get 'posted' up in this material and you'll reap the rewards tenfold.
