Liquicity’s newest release comes by way of Boston native, BoxPlot. Having been a prominent member of the Liquicity family for a bit now, his releases on Soul Deep, Subsphere, Fat Tape, Liquid Tones, and others, carry that big arena vibe that started with Hospital Records and London Elektricity back in the day.
Also having collaborated with other top-notch drum & bass artists, Flite, Ownglow, and Voicians, BoxPlot’s sound is becoming more infectious with every release.
One of my favorite tracks of the EP, Voicemail Poems tugs at the heartstrings. Bringing back old memories of London Elektricity and tunes like Rewind as well as Chris.Su’s Solaris VIP – the opening is absolute bliss-bath that will send any dancefloor into a frenzy of smiles and hard stepping. Beautifully created with organic bass, and reverberant hits, BoxPlot – I am calling out to you – Get a band together and do this LIVE.
Polaroids of You features Hospital Records liquicitizen, Ownglow. Staccato-piano hits lead into the bassline drop, and carries on what Voicemail Poems started. There’s no getting away from this one. Meant for lovers, brothers, sisters, friends, and all other connections on the planet, the second of four on this EP can even be shared with your pet. The trap-ish breakdown is a welcome change as the build initiates once again.
Voicians pick up in collaboration where Ownglow left off – auto-tuned vocals smash the drums into the speaker. Immediately reminded of High Contrast’s Days Go By, We Lose it All is sure to become a big room sing-along, and after two high-energy smashers in the latter part of the EP, WLiA allows for a time to slow down – not for long though. Enjoy the build.
Cult of a Broken Man sees BoxPlot again on his own – a wonderful way to finish out the EP. Seeming to be a review of comparisons, CoaBM has vibes of Camo & Krooked’s remix of Future Prophecies’ September written all over it – reverberant pianos, chilled out vibes… Don’t let that fool you though. Half-way through the track, a monster reece comes slamming through ala Bad Company and smashes the place to bits before the melody comes trailing in again.
11/10 from me. Big up BoxPlot. And that comes from someone who runs at 180+ mph away from big floor liquid.
