The Neptune Project (feat. Bvitae)
MalLabel Music is elated to be welcoming back one of our favourite high end, intelligent producers Aversive with another beautiful expedition of trip hop glory.
Long creating magic in her studio in the misty mountains of British Columbia, a lack of distraction clearly plays to her benefit as she has churned out 12 releases over 3 years, with The Neptune Project being one of the most refined and cerebral productions yet. The decision to pair with another Canadian gem Bvitae has elevated Aversive’s sound to a new range of symphonic mastery.
‘The Neptune Project’ is in essence, a breath of absolute fresh air. Orchestral horns, chilled out snares and soothing, feminine vocals weave through a sultry and mature lounge of modern kaleidoscopic jazz. The EP is decidedly smooth and extremely well produced, a meeting of time and place. How can a sound establish itself at once at the absolute forefront of the west coast’s future scene and in smokey east coast venues of 1990’s Massive Attack mayhem? Aversive and Bvitae have managed to break through to quantum experimental levels that feel familiar and yet so incredibly new.
Goodbye bro-step, later big-room bass; there’s a new movement of gentle, refined electronica arriving and Aversive and Bvitae are sensuously leading the revolution.
