Willem Gator‘s latest slice of electronic mesmerism, Sold Out, is now officially available. The EP can be streamed via Spotify and is also available via the usual outlets. The single, ‘Jingle Plaid’, is available to stream via SoundCloud and is accompanied by a beautiful music video.
Sold Out taps into both the playful, danceable territory of Severed Heads and the focused melodic drive of early Warp releases. ‘2007’ is hypnotic and pulsing, evoking a dreamy, nocturnal landscape. ‘Fragments Vol. 2’ conjures an eerie, almost tribal atmosphere, like Popul Vuh jamming with Dead Can Dance. The five-track release reaches its climax with the 11-minute ‘It Collapse’, which lays elegant yet icy synth tones over stuttering rhythms and a roving, questioning bassline.
