Known as one of the founding members of the Shinkoyo music collective as well as a resident at Brooklyn's Paris London West Nile performance space, Zeljko McMullen (pronounced 'zhel-ko') has recently been returning to the dance forms of his youth. But rather than producing dark, hard techno tracks that hurry along at ungodly speeds, McMullen's Wish project has a brighter feeling. "trippelette," for example, is a shimmering number featuring warm bass tones, astoundingly multi-layered synth polyrhythms, and watery, high-frequency tinklings. Like a glass of lemonade on a hot summer day, the piece is bound to make it onto stereo systems as warmer weather approaches. For more information as well as other tracks from the Wish project and Shinkoyo, check out his artist page.
