If your ambient electronica playlists are sounding a little dusty, up and coming US-based experimental artist and producer Scotton Drive’s latest single “Short Loop” is sure to inject plenty of glitchy soul amongst the mix.
Technical Glitch Hip Hop beats, soulfully succinct vocals, and intricately arrestive melodies don’t often go hand in hand. And usually, experimentalism hinders accessibility, but with Short Loop, there’s a real sense that you’re listening to a soundscape constructed through immersive innovation unravelling.
Scotton Drive’s ability to play around with light and deep textures at the same time as throwing you rhythmically off-balance with glitchy breakbeats and still leave you hooked within the mix is a testament to their talent.
You can check out Scotton Drive’s latest track which was released on November 11th for yourselves by heading over to Bandcamp now.
