Pictureplane "Cramping on the Ice"
- Words: Melkorka Licea
Earlier this month, recent Brooklyn transplant Pictureplane (a.k.a. Travis Egedy) released The Alien Body mixtape, an eclectic 17-track collection of collaborations, remixes, and new productions from the former XLR8R podcast contributor. Lifted from the new effort is "Cramping on the Ice," a throwback track of sorts that channels '90s rave nostalgia alongside an uncomplicated mid-tempo beat, which serves as the bed to echoing vocal samples and an unwavering synth scale. For those whose interests are piqued by "Cramping on the Ice," the rest of Pictureplane's The Alien Body mixtape can be heard in full over on the man's Bandcamp page.
