Review: Breakbeat is again in a fantastic place as we see the genre to grow across the breadth of 2020, with releases such as this from Vancara being one of the reasons why. The title track 'Railroad' kicks us off with an immediate bang, smashing together intense drum punches with warbling synthesizer pulls, before we move into the uber-funky bass grooves and constantly expanding melodies of 'Going East'. Next, we are greeted by the charming piano lines and sweeping basslines of 'City Street Jam' before the super smooth harmonic structures of 'Disco Balls' provide us with the perfect outro.
Review: Funkadelic flavours are in full abundance as Vancara steps up for a vibrant tree track selection on his 'Underwater' EP on Adapted. We begin with the soulful swings of 'Breadsticks' which channels a stripped back bass and drum layout through incredibly catchy melodies. Next up, the title track 'Underwater', which boasts stunning aquatic soundscaping across its introduction before descending into jazzy delirium come the breakdown. Finally we round off with 'In The Night' which employs shuffling bass instrumentation alongside uplifting chord progressions and delicate arpeggiators, resulting in a super funky landscape.
