Frederic Robinson – Bloom [Feat. Stray] / Shore [Blu Mar Ten Music]
Posted by Adam on 8th October 2013
Building upon the foundations laid by his stunning debut single for the label, ‘Theme Park / Off Topic’, Blu Mar Ten Music is proud to present the second single from prodigiously talented young producer Frederic Robinson’s forthcoming album, ‘Mixed Signals’. The two tracks on offer here give a further insight into the depth and diversity of Frederic’s work and what you can expect from his debut LP when it drops later this year.
On ‘Bloom’ Robinson teams up with experimental electronic producer and fellow BMTM alumnus Stray for a characteristically forward-thinking and unique exploration of 170bpm’s outer possibilities. Built around a skittering tribal rhythm, lush synths and acoustic instrumentation weave in and out of the track’s skeleton over a deep b-line punctuated by elegantly cut ethereal vocals.
Bloom is complemented with the delicate percussive timbres and rich ambience of downtempo offering ‘Shore’. Here Robinson’s off-kilter, organic rhythms combine with a dense patchwork of piano, strings and natural textures to create a track that is as beautiful as it is haunting, aided by the distant call of Robinson’s own vocals.
