It’s a big time over at Simplify. First the Freddy Todd release, now this? It’s almost too much goodness. Hailing from Alberta, Canada, 20 year-old Elliot Mars is bringing the noise with his fast-paced glitch hop glory with some drumstep peppered in. Its nice to see the genre spreading beyond its preeminent hubs in the west coast and Denver, and with what this young producer is doing with his music, I see bright things ahead.
Particle EP is only four tracks long, but the tracks BUMP. I was quite impressed with the title track in particular. I imagine that if this dropped at a show somewhere, there may be some minor tramplings. This song best epitomizes the sound of Mars as presented by his EP, but that shouldn’t stop you from heading over to Simplify and gripping a copy for yourself. The changes in tempo, melody, bass, and sound are subtle and dynamic. In the end, it’s the little things that make Particle such an energetic release.
