New Mecanika: “Couleur”

Shiga-based electronic producer Mecanika has a new EP due out for the end of the year, but the 18-year-old artist decided to share a track from it way earlier than most net-centric promotion tends to do nowadays (good for you!). “Couleur” does something in its own way that has made a lot of new electronic songs stand out to me lately, which is tease messiness but keep everything together before chaos arrives. The song features bell chimes and bleepy kid keyboard notes, yet those all eventually give way for a rush of synths and (seemingly) pitched-up vocal samples turned to sonic light. Enough moving parts to keep things kinetic, but without ever turning into mush. Listen above.
