Stèv "Winter Train"
Italian producer Stèv—who appeared on Project Mooncircle's Uprising compilation earlier this month—takes a patient 90 seconds to build up an intro for "Winter Train." To his credit, this first movement proves a strong enough listen in its own right, as soft melodies mix with subdued pads and the loose strums of guitar strings. Eventually, Stèv laces the track with a simple-but-inviting groove while continuing to shape a rich tapestry of atmospheric, often reversed elements and miniature melodies—sounding somewhere along the lines of a more bubbly Tycho. "Winter Train" will also appear on the producer's five-track Elsewhere EP, set to drop via the Portland-based Loci imprint on December 10.
