Plaza "Fish Water"
- Words: Jesse Sussman
To celebrate the recent release of his debut record under the Plaza moniker, SF producer Johan Churchill has offered up a robust tune full of sweet synth licks, funky basslines, and fresh, evolving rhythms. Aptly self-described as "electro-lounge" music, the "Fish Water" groove showcases Churchill's production chops with his crafty synthesizer use, often creating crisp and interesting timbres despite relying on the aforementioned instrument for most of the recording's melodic sounds. The pace of Plaza's unreleased production is rather quick, and the fact that it's still danceable despite its sharp turns is a testament to Churchill's talents. Plaza's debut LP Flip Phone is out now via Sound Boutique.
