BADFLITE is no stranger for STMPD family as he released some serious tunes over the last couple of months. His single “Ain’t Coming Home” and the remix of Matisse & Sadko’s “Into You was” on fire and everywhere on the internet. Now he is back at STMPD RCRDS with his latest three tracks EP.
Smeh is a joyous slice of future pop decked out with heavenly vocal synths, epic percussion and widescreen bass tones. Its bright and breezy melodies sit beautifully with phat beats and a wonderfully hazy distorted guitar style solo that wouldn’t go amiss in a vintage Kanye track.
Strah opts for a tougher sound with buzzing bass and hard-hitting percussion that fits perfectly with the meandering, dubstep-tinged lead sound. A slow-burning breakdown heightens the drama, and the whole thing is a masterclass in production finesse.
Pustota completes the set with a more pensive approach, with beautiful string sections and melancholy electric piano motifs breaking up the hazy, chugging downtempo beat. Taking a little essence from the tropical sound but creating something more subtle with it, this beautiful number shows he has more than just dancefloor ambitions.
