Slim Media Player returns to Pacific Rhythm with a wonderfully original EP, Quicksand, his first new material since 2016’s Rhythms Of The Pacific Volume 3. The EP is the product of Slim Media Player & DJ D.DEE culling through 20+ hours of live jams recorded in Vancouver at Deep Blue Studios from 2016 to 2018.
The EP opens with the records namesake Quicksand, a playful piece of peak-time material that’s quirky, uplifting, and dare we say a touch heart-warming. Mouthfeel comes through swinging but plays a touch more coy than the opener, serving as an effective tension-builder on the dancefloor that builds into a thoughtful groover with some light at the end of tunnel.
On the b-side S.M.P explores deeper territory with Memory Bias (Nostalgia Mix), an aquatic roller blanketed with warmth and a contemplative aire that stretches for nearly 9 minutes. The EP fades out with the gentle drift of Tschüs, a warm swaddle that will quell your anxieties and affirm that there are indeed some things that are right in this world, this track being one of them.
