LA-based producer Low Poly returns with his emotionally-driven, forward-thinking Contact Sparks EP. This project truly wows us with its blending of genres, taking us on a cosmic journey from start to finish.
Low Poly has quietly been making a name for himself over the last couple of years while inspiring many of his peers along the way. Having landed releases on popular labels such as Jadū Dala, mau5trap, and Hex Cougar‘s Alter/Ego imprint, there are no limits to the sounds and styles that Low Poly can bring to the table.
Earlier this year, the talented producer joined the impressive roster at Wavecraft Collective. Nearly a month after this exciting announcement, Low Poly played a Space Yacht event in LA with other up-and-coming breakout bass talents such as Player Dave, FLY and COMA TEK. Considering how diverse his discography is, Low Poly is a name to keep an eye on with each new release that comes out. You’ll be getting something unique and fresh every time.
Fresh is exactly what we get here in his four-track Contact Sparks EP. Starting with the intro track, “Better Than I Ever Was”, Low Poly wastes no time at all introducing us to his genre-blending abilities. The soothing, alternative vocals provided by JOON set the stage for an entrancing, halftime drop that allows us to take off and explore a glimpse into this rising star’s world.
Moving into the title track, “Contact Sparks”, Low Poly turns up the energy with a melodic, yet heavy halftime banger. The vocal sample used throughout this song gives it that extra grit, perfectly setting up the arrival of new bass sounds that hit the listener’s ear from every and all angles.
The third track, “Black Swan,” is my personal favorite. This song perfectly captures who Low Poly is as an artist. The ability to combine so many different genres and sounds this seamlessly is truly jaw-dropping. I love his ability to switch it up at any given moment, introducing heavy elements that are supported by softer background atmospheres.
This rollercoaster of a tune leads us into the fourth and final track, “Some Semblance”. Low Poly slows it down for this outro track, allowing us to come back to Earth after embarking on quite the emotional journey. This is one last opportunity to remind everyone of just how many different sounds he is capable of creating, effortlessly fitting together perfectly.
We can’t wait to hear what’s next from this up-and-coming talent. What did you think of the new Contact Sparks EP from Low Poly? Let us know in the comments below or on our social media!
