LA producer Eighth Moon comes correct with two upbeat slices of melodic liquid business. A-side Photosynthesis blends soaring, IDM-esque synth melodies with a driving liquid break and warm bass. Over on the flip, Archipelago heads for softer, jazzier territory, dialling back the energy a little to explore playful melodies via synth and piano.
With a melodic flourish that’s reminiscent of brain-dance producers of the Warp / Rephlex arena (Wisp springs to mind) the tracks both have a charm and innocence which is lacking from much of modern drum & bass. Have a listen to the clips below and hit up Eighth Moon’s bandcamp to grab the tracks right now.
