Pablo Bolivar "Rise Your Demons"
Pablo Bolivar is known in his Spanish homeland for crafting lush, evocative house productions, but as of yet he hasn't managed to garner much notice throughout the rest of the world. Perhaps that is about to change with the release of his forthcoming album, Must (set to drop on June 17 via Bolivar's own Avantroots label), where the synth-driven "Rise Your Demons" has been pulled from. The tune is a meditative production that layers classic-sounding arpeggios and steady drum programming, resulting in a seriously laid-back effort. "Rise Your Demons" may represent a bit of a sidestep from Bolivar's previous, more-danceable fare, but is certainly a welcome detour nonetheless.
