Review: Moody with deep basslines, urban pop, trance and UKG sentimentalities, Foreverland delivers this mixed Discovery EP. Turning in three individual numbers also touching on dubstep and drum and bass, progressive, tech house and Ibiza pop house, R&B vocals are the icing on the cake here. For higher octane rave cuts look to "Feelings", with piano-laden four-to-the-four house grooves in "Can't Get Enough", with potential Ministry Of Sound future classic material in Royal Hustle's "Work It".
Review: PC Music affiliate and rising star SOPHIE is up next on Glasgow's Numbers imprint. Having previously worked with the likes Madonna and LE1F, he brings his already established take on pop to this full length. Somewhere between post UK bass, electro-pop and minimal R&B would be the best way to describe the oddball music on offer here. There's the vocal led pop mutations on "Bipp" and "Just Like We Never Said Goodbye" but not forgetting the gorgeous symphonies on "Elle" . "Lemonade" and "Hard" are proper bass assaults merged with Top 40 sounds if they were on acid; an unholy mixture that somehow works. The album is wildley diverse with "Msmsmsm" merging electro, trap and trance aesthetics in unorthodox methods while towards the end "L.O.V.E." is a beatless and experimental exercise.
