Capturelight – Circles [Soulvent]

Every now and then a piece of music lands in the inbox that is instantly captivating and effortlessly beautiful. The new release from Capturelight is one of those rare gems.

Circles kicks things off with intricate and characterful percussion, and a grasp of melody that instantly hooks you in. The track has an ethereal, almost dream-like quality, with whispered shards of vocal peaking through the mix.

B-side Bubblewrap takes things in a more jungle-inspired direction via crispy breakbeats while retaining an emotive use of melody; more insistent than Circles but equally enthralling, and filled with a sense of muted euphoria and yearning.

This single is the first time the Bay Area producer has landed in the Dojo inbox but based on this we’ll certainly be keeping a close eye on him! Check out the tracks below alongside a guest mix to celebrate the release.
