The title track from Kalani’s ‘Rush’ EP on Troubleshoot Recordings takes the listener on a cosmic ride with crisp breakbeats and unending layers of deep, bubbling squelch. ‘Goose’ then continues with psychedelic growls and spell-binding melodies before ‘Frontiers’ harkens back to ‘90s tech house with a crunched-out M1 organ bass, whimsical vocal synths, and intergalactic pads. Closing out the release, ‘Slipstream’ conveys a sense of mystical wonder, exploring enchanted forests and deep subterranean caverns with more subtle breaks and interstellar synth-work.
