LA-based electronic producer, DJ Bander returns with a new EP, The Arrival, this year's follow-up to his 2012 debut, Boomtown, via Kid Recordings. The 4-track EP is an immersive late-night soundtrack, rich with indelible melodies, introspective lyrics, lush textures, heavy bass and sultry grooves reminiscent of The Weeknd, Massive Attack, or Skream.
Three tracks on the EP feature the vocals of Taryn Blake, DJ Bander's first featured artist. Check out "Drifting" on the Soundcloud embed above. It's a dark, downtempo composition reminiscent of something you might hear in a Michael Mann flick: smooth and sexy with just enough action to let you know it's serious.
Also premiering today is "Relentless" an instrumental track with layered drums, airy guitars, and well placed keys that create a dreamy motify that's at once dreary and bright.
"The Arrival" EP is out Tuesday, July 8th, 2014 and is available for pre-order on iTunes.
