Master of ambience and mellow aesthetic Killigrew has just released another soft and ethereal track, this time in the form of a chillstep remix of Crywolf & Ianborg’s “Ribcage”. Featuring downtempo guitar licks, piano flares, and anthemic vocals, this track is best served cold with a side of shut eyelids. It is currently up for free download.
It begins with light plucks of an acoustic guitar and sweeping, reverberated synths. A crunchy percussion arrangement stands in front of the mix until the vocals enter the space with gentle force. Chillstep wubs delicately breach the surface as cascades of noise ebb and flow underneath. The vocals are chopped and pitched up, giving the track a relaxed yet profound depth. Killigrew reduces the layers to only the piano and guitar, before the swell returns with a far off snare hit and the percussion from the start. The fluttering synth returns with newfound meaning, and carries the track until its end.
