Stream the Debut EP by Newcomer Snasen
- Words: James Eaton
It's rare that we champion an entire record from an artist who's only appeared on XLR8R once before, but Norwegian producer Snasen is an ideal exception, his intriguing Failing Upwards EP (out today via Sellout!) the reason why. We posted the record's detailed and textural title track as a free download late last month, and today, we have a full stream of its five eclectic productions. Fans of music coming from labels like Tri Angle and Modern Love, take note. Utilizing plenty of discordant electronics, spare drum-machine rhythms, odd time signatures, ethereal vocal samples, and other ghostly nuances, the artist born Robin Snasen Rengård has created a clear statement of intent on his debut release, effectively satiating our taste for experimental sounds and piquing our interests to hear what comes next from the budding producer. We think you'll feel the same way once you give Failing Upwards a spin in the player below.
