Looking for a little future bass/trap mixture to spice up your day? Look no further than Paces new two track EP Julian. The EP highlights the two original track with two outstanding remixes from 813 and Chiefs. The titled track is a warm and tropical steel-drum tune that makes me wish the dead of winter was actually…well, dead. “Open Up Your Eyes” is a trap tune that utilizes thick layers of bass and Erin Marshall’s sultry vocals. While the originals are what attracted me to the EP at first, the remixes from 813 and Chiefs made me stay for repeated listens. Grab Paces’ new EP for free via Bandcamp.
Die High Records added this note with the EP:
Following on from the success of his previous EP, The Pact, through visionary US label Symbols, PACES is back with another forward thinking release. This time, a two-track EP featuring the vocal talents of Erin Marshall, released through DIE HIGH.
The Julian EP features 2 originals plus remixes from 813 and Melbournian heavy-hitter Chiefs. The title track is a fun, tropical, dancefloor make-out jam. It features the gorgeous vocals of up and coming Sydney vocalist Erin Marshall and is filled with kalimbas, steel drums and the subtlety PACES is known for. This is a textbook example of PACES’ sound; a little bit Jersey Club, a little bit Future Beat and a little bit Garage.
If “Julian” gets asses on the floor, then “Open Up Your Eyes” will have them throwing up trap-hands like somebody spiked the punch! With a nod to producers like Branchez and Ta-Ku, this one bundles up everything you love about future beats and trap and then adds heartbreakingly beautiful vocals.
