I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again– Saturate Records is dope, show a friend! The German-based label has been ahead of the musical curve for years now releasing nothing but whimsical, adventurous music with a consistency and quality that really makes one wonder how they could only have 7k followers on soundcloud… does anybody read this shit?
Anyway, here we are again with yet another incredible release, this time from Bay-Area (yay area!) producer BOATS who’s really outdone himself with what I consider to be his greatest release to date– a 10 track album entitled Squiggle.
Now’s probably a good time to spark one, turn down the lights, flip on the hi-fi and hit play
From first track to last, the album is dripping with BOATS’ bass-centric, heavy-groove production style but there’s a feeling of diversity as BOATS moves between improvised synth leads and simple but compelling purple synth bass, creating a sort of modern purple-trap hybrid sound which, quite frankly, sounds ill as ****. While most of the album has a more charged-up feel to it, tracks like Rain Skate and the Filosofischestilte remix of Puma Slide offer a more chill, groovy aesthetic to break things up (the remixes by Subp Pao and DJ Pound are both on the level of the originals!)… There’s something for everyone on this release!
If you haven’t already, stream the album below (seriously, it’s more fun in the dark) and if you dig it, be sure to cop a download! The album is available as a PAY WHAT YOU WANT download for a limited time!
…and for your own health, go add Saturate Records on SoundCloud… isn’t it time your feed started working for YOU?
