Pointé Records present Loungery Day’s ‘When It Breaks’ EP, his second release for the label. Counting the likes of Artful Dodger,MJ Cole, SBTRKT, Dark Sky and T.Williams as his influences, theMontreal based producer’s signing came about via meetings with the Pointé Records crew at DJ sets around Montreal and the famous Blizzarts venue.
‘Peace of Mind’ kicks off with swirling pads that soon make room for a shuffling garage rhythm, vocal stabs and an ever-present bassline. ‘Keep It Simple’ is an upfront track led by a recognisable vocal hook, over a grounded 4×4 rhythm.
Rising UK producer Artifact adds his distinct stylings to the remix of ‘Keep It Simple’, mangling the clean vocal lines under his hard hitting beats. Latcha takes things up a notch while French newcomer D.L:T.A. strips back the elements to make a clean, funky take on the original. Canadian producer KwikFikscompletes the package with his take on ‘Peace of Mind’, subduing the floating nature of the original and moving it into darker territory.
“Music is always evolving and it’s interesting to capture the moment where you are allow to incorporate new styles. I remember when dubstep was a huge thing in Montreal, lots of producers and DJs were getting sick of it and so they tried new things. For some it fails because they were too iconic to the scene and fans felt betrayed, but for others it was a success. That’s how you recognize great artists, because they can adapt to their time.”Loungery Day
