The endless talents of Applescal take a new twist as he lines up a mini-album under the Yoshiba 87 alias. ‘Beaming Flowers From India’ is a collection of Applescal’s more downbeat and melodic productions – a style we all witnessed within his brilliant isolatedmix.
Packed full of addictive synths, intriguing production styles and head-nodding beats, it feels like Applescal has released a long-hidden passion into the wild. The progression and euphoria of a talented techno/electronic producer is plain to the ears, yet Applescal is keen to keep us guessing with this one.
This album dips between slower drums and adventurous synthesizers reminding me of M83 alongside ambient-styled electronic tracks similar to Oneohtrix Point Never. Pien Feith makes another Applescal feature (after appearing on his isolatedmix) with chopped-up slow, driving beats and an insane looping vocal. And we’re even treated to, what seems like, an early Aphex Twin inspired ‘Nineteen 8+7′.
My favourite, ‘Earthly Vibes’ is Applescal at his best… Melodic, progressive, delicate, addictive and beaming of summer inspiration, this track reflects the very essence of ‘Beaming Flowers From India’. And because Pascal is such a nice guy (and he loved our warm reception to his isolatedmix), he’s given us this particular track as an exclusive free download…
