Helsinki beat producer Desto is preparing to drop a forthcoming EP via Amsterdam’s Rwina label. Although only comprised of four short tracks, The EP is sure to pack in a lot of punch, similar to his last release on the label, Makowrap. The Makowrap title track was such a success that it merited a VIP mix, which he recently released as a bit of anticipation-builder for the upcoming EP.
If you were a fan of the post I did about Obey City back in November, then you’ll find this song to be a pleasant throwback to the 8-bit, bass-heavy beats of yore. Everything is all about the layering with this track; from the colorful melody to the big room basslines, this beat will leave you in a dream-like demeanor long after the last kick slips into your ears. Indie beats have been on the uprise, especially in today’s hipster-dominated alternative scenes across the planet. If this guy is any indication of Helsinki’s beat scene, then you can be sure that I’ll be checking out more great stuff to come out of there.
