Splicing, dicing, flipping, and vibing, "Lost" by Chicago's Buckley doesn't skip a beat.
In today's music marketplace, a lot of young producers feel the urge to fit in by cutting up their beats and diving headfirst into the gamut of future leaning electronic music. Few manage to do anything incredibly interesting because of the over saturation, but Buckley stands out. His latest track, "Lost," has connective tissue to the godfathers like Manila Killa and Flume, but it does so with a childlike sense of wonder and respect for his peers.
With a melodic intro punctuated by snares and pitched samples, "Lost" eventually unleashes into a dreamy cacophony of phased out synths and sweet string sections. The marriage of these sounds go hard without being abrasive allowing the piece to evolve fluidly while maintaining enough energy for people to get lit... fam.
Dynamic in its execution and poppy enough to cater to the current trends in nu-EDM, Buckley's "Lost" is a prime example of what we can do in today's future leaning landscape.
