- Words: Glenn Jackson
Layers of sharply chopped, hiss-addled samples and the slow clatter of a half-time beat kick off "Neapolitan," the opening cut from Montreal producer Toboggan's forthcoming Matryoshka EP. Dropping for free on December 17 via The Villa (a collective which the producer helps run), the EP is set to bring four new works from the Canadian talent. "Neapolitan" shows off Toboggan's sense for melodic texture and methodically built rhythms, with the sun-kissed opening chords leading the way towards a sunken four-on-the-floor procession which makes the track pleasantly reminiscent of records like Seams' solid Tourist EP or the work of budding Dutch producer Applescal.
