New Music: Jamie Now – Jamie Now’s Mystical Menagerie (EP)
Melbourne-based producer releases stellar future trap EP.
Fresh from releasing remixes for the likes of Golden Features, Alison Wonderland, HWLS and more, plus an EP release last year, Melbourne-based producer Jamie Now has released another cracking EP to kick off a big 2015. Entitled Jamie Now’s Mystical Menagerie, the EP explores the futuristic, chilled-out trap vibes that Australia has seemingly perfected since the rise of Flume a few years back. The EP starts with the slow-burning The Astounding Reality of the Flabbergasted Panda, which displays a balance of light synth, deep bass and chopped vocals to slowly build into a somewhat heavy song. The Sophisticated Komodo's Elegant Tea Party is a much more upbeat single, with a combo of swirling and bouncing synth packing some serious punch. The EP closes with The Unfortunate Demise of the Silver Fox which is trappier than the previously mentioned two singles.
