2. Cyril's Garden
Across the two tracks Booka Shade radiantly display their signature style with rich melodic bassline and textured atmosphere, one aimed towards a more laid back afterhours aesthetic and the other edging into more peak-time territory.
‘Sacred’ leads on the package, employing warbling bass drones and a combination of choppy square wave and organ stabs alongside fluttering resonant synth flourishes and crunchy percussion, whilst the focal stages of the track see a heady arpeggiated hook take control to further fuel the heady, peak-time feel.
‘Cyril’s Garden’ follows next to complete the two-tracker, featuring vacillating strings, a bubbling, dreamy arpeggio lead, sort organic drums and elongated bass drones to create a cinematic, dynamically unfold composition.
