Heads up, lovers of psychedelic bass music: a new force of gloriously weird and wonky beat hustlers are rising in the Pacific Northwest. Tacoma native, Kozmo, can be found right in the middle this fast-developoing scene; and his debut solo EP could probably be considered one of its cornerstones.
Featuring six all-original tracks, the Eureka! EP demonstrates the young producer’s profound ability to fuse and blend elements and styles that seemingly couldn’t be more different. What do you kids know about a little mid-tempo psy-trap, huh? Kozmo‘s got that on lock. What about that seriously squelchy, nu-skool glitch that Tipper fans can’t get enough of? Oh yeah, he’s got that, too. And looking beyond all this for a moment, the EP also contains stellar remixes from Northern California all-stars like BOATS, Elevated Mind, and several others. In short, this is not a release to be slept on.
The Eureka! EP has been released via ShadowTrix Music and is available now on the label’s Bandcamp. If you want to stay up to date with the freshest, most innovative tunes on the West Coast, we highly recommend keeping tabs on this crew. In the meantime, peep the full EP stream after the jump.
