On January 31st, 2019, up and coming Eletronica artist Bastiko released his latest mix “Running Around in Circles” and proved that when it comes to Electronic Pop, German artists seem to have the rest of the world beat. Even if you’re as ignorantly uni-lingual as I, you will still appreciate the feel behind Running Around in Circles which uses English and German lyrics to give the sound a truly European feel.
As the melody of the chorus hits the electronic soundscape it’s all but impossible not to get caught up in the momentum of the track which plays around with plenty of experimental effects, especially on the vocals. Yet despite the Running Around in Circles being a mechanically-engineered track there’s plenty of organic expression which will allow you to set Bastiko apart from the rest.
