Otik "Green Tea"
London producer Otik proved himself adept at creating house tracks that fall on the silky side of the spectrum when he sent over his "Thugluv" tune as a free download early this year. His latest, an eight-track EP entitled Persist (out on November 25), shows that he's equally capable working with a palette of raw, gritty sounds. Pulled from that release, "Green Tea" finds Otik juxtaposing a one-note, portamento synthline and chopped sample against a dirty hi-hat pattern. Its arrangement takes some unexpected detours, at times flirting with the type of underwater, modulated synth sounds that have become de rigueur recently, while nonetheless maintaining a steady flow.
