Intergalactic trap in ascension, XMPLA’s “Better” is a blast.
XMPLA splits stratosphere in his new track – blending his own vocal variations into a single cosmic entity.
“…Taking me places…”
Smoke’s billowing; taking shape… A tree in faint light. You’re afloat.
A smile traces its crescent across your lips.
Nestled in nothingness; you drift on air. Your eyes, heavy, are closing tight.
“Sailing with no mast…”
The vocals are “Better’s” fire – phasing in from other planes of existence like long lost alien stations on your spaceship’s broken radio.
Each pitch-shifted, thoughtfully-accented voice has its own story to tell, yet they’re all laced so intricately together… It boggles the mind.
Underpinning the unreal vocals are a host of percussive and melodic elements. A testament to trap minimalism, each and every element fits where it ought to. Not too much, not too little.
Key stings and breathy synth magic swaddle “Better” in its own energetic vibe. Overall, it’s out of this world.
Have a listen if you’re up for some welcome experimentation in the vast chill of trap space.
