Hailing from Malmö, Sweden, Bolting Bits regular Emil Sune has found a way to keep himself busy while most artists’ creativity has stalled throughout the pandemic. Having just launched his sub-label Mostly Cozy in February (which already has 3 releases to its name), Sune has somehow managed to set aside time in his hectic schedule to work on his own music. Arguably his most ambitious effort yet, the producer has chosen to team up with the legendary New York record label Let’s Play House for a second time to release his LP Everything is Fine.
The record is a proper full-length and contains 10 infectious tunes that showcase the sort of jazz-infused house melodies we’ve grown to recognize Sune by. Although it’s difficult for us to pick our favorite of the bunch, we have decided to premiere his lead track Expertis.
Whimsical in its temperament, this original utilizes an assortment of looped synths and percussion as its anchor and playfully builds upon these elements throughout its entirety. Before you know it, Sune’s layered basslines and arpeggiated chords gradually get your head nodding and body grooving – whetting the appetite in anticipation of what’s to come next. This comforting arrangement of sounds perfectly encapsulates this album’s core message and the timeliness in which it’s written. Sometimes you just need someone to tell you, “Everything is fine…everything is fine.” And given the year we all just had, this is precisely the energy we need right now.
Everything is Fine can be streamed in full here. The vinyl is set to hit stores June 8th!
