Populous means to draw people together, sometimes creating an overcrowded effect in a particular space. Territories of so-named Italian producer and moniker of Andrea Mangia borders on creating an opposite result. The imagined essence of such aura described parallels running through a tangled jungle and once reaching the end of breath, meets an open plain field hovered by starry skies. "Fall" initiates by highlighting breathy vocals of Kyoto native, Cuushe which amplify the track into a masterpiece comparable to a flower blooming in forward-motion. Blue Hawaii's addition to this dream-cast is like an edgy cherry on top with immediate recognizition of haunting glitches and roomy abstract beats, conveying grimy tension to a sentimental pop statement.
Populous' latest full-length, Night Safari, is available now via Berlin-based label Bad Panda Records. Furthermore, don't miss Blue Hawaii's recent one-off single "Get Happy" along with an edit of the song, "Get Happier".
