PREMIERE : Baltra – Over Again [Step Recordings]

baltra - sophia ep

Unless you we’re hiding in an underground nuclear bunker for the past year, you might have noticed that there’s a wave of producers specializing in « lo-fi » house: voluntarily filthered, « unmastered » sound, paradoxically boasting thumping drums and kicks while using soft vocal samples and delicate synth melodies. The pioneers of this « neo-style » have been progressively making a name for themselves, and gained acknowledgement from different music platforms worldwide. One of the households name and heroes of this genre is Baltra (soundcloud). The New-York based artist represents the quintessence of the genre. His style successfully communicates some kind of melancholia or romantic intent to the listeners, even while the drums and bass drivers are telling you to move your feet. His latest EP is the perfect example of it.

Baltra is taking us on a incredible journey with his two-tracked EP « SOPHIA », released on STEP Recordings. We’re excited to premiere the 2nd joint, « Over Again ». As previously stated, Baltra stays true to his style and brings us in his world, with a smooth vocal sample, upbeat melody , well timed drum beats and hi hats to keep your feet moving and keep you in a state of shock as you find out that your hips are working. With halloween only a few days away, the two tracks of Baltra’s latest EP will have you thinking about valentine’s day. As his tracks titles often flirt with themes related to romanticism, there’s a good chance you’ll fall in love with his productions.  Already in pre-sales, release date 28th October.
