Right now marks the starting of a premiere series we’re beginning with electronic producer Kobina. We’ll be premiering a track from his new EP four Poems every single Wednesday more than the subsequent month.
Now positioned in Amsterdam, the Dublin native has place with each other a serene collection of modern electronica in four Poems.
As indicated by the title, the EP has its genesis in four poems Kobina wrote in collaboration with four unique vocalists. These poems would go on to serve as the foundation upon which the rest of EP was laid.
‘Does It’ is up very first. Featuring vocals from Irish/Swedish vocalist The Sei. The song was very first written when Kobina relocated from Dublin to Amsterdam and was struggling to uncover a sense of identity in his new surrounds.
There’s a sense of alienation, an aspiration to belong underpinning the lyrics all through.
The instrumental is cinematic, an exceptionally detailed mix of ambience and motion snuggly nestled beneath the umbrella term modern electronica. There are dance components everywhere on the reduce, but it is not developed for the dance floor. As an alternative, ‘Does It’ sounds extremely intimate.
The piano chords, upon which the mix is amassed, fill the stereo image. The synths, which creep in as the song continues, only additional emphasizes the principal physique of the track – The Sei’s vocals and that piano.
As if sensing a missed chance to make a banger, Kobina teamed up with Daithí for a remix of the track. Daithí requires the guts of the track and reimagines it as a progressive residence track.
It is a quite powerful introduction to four Poems and there’s so a lot additional to come.
