Slow Magic- “Hold Still”

I tend to be pickier about electronic music as opposed to rock, and Slow Magic makes just the kind of electronic music that suits my tastes. It’s a little on the chiller side, flows in a casually intriguing way, makes minimal use of vocals, and tends to layer and stagger the beats and sounds to make the composition feel varied, balanced, and well thought out. His tracks are intricately detailed and carefully produced. And the arrangement he has laid out with this latest track, “Hold Still,” has a subtle way of enticing the listener to dive deep into the soundscape and get carried by the rather unpredictable currents that move it along.

Slow Magic will release his new album, “How To Run Away,” on September 9 via Downtown Records. You can pre-order it here

Slow Magic- “Girls”

Masked Producer Slow Magic is about to release a follow up to his 2012 debut, “Triangle.” The first single from the upcoming album, “Girls,” is now available to stream on Soundcloud. The song is built from a loop and has a pulsating, shimmering, intriguingly catchy quality that reminds me a bit of Odesza.

If you like Odesza or other similar electronic artists such as Flume, Chrome Sparks, or even Phantogram, you’ll want to check this out.
