Why do we like this?

“Liquid Lotus” is the latest release from Woesum, a 20-year-old producer who’s already collaborated with the likes of Yung Lean, Thaiboy Digital and Acea. The talented beat artist has most recently produced "Sippin," "God Only Knows" and "Shine" – three bonus tracks from the deluxe edition of Yung Lean's new album, Warlord.

"Liquid Lotus" begins with a faint but steady percussive beat, from which an eerie, almost oriental synth line emerges. More percussion elements slowly come into sharp focus, and the synths being to rise. Just when you expect the track to fall into a heavy drop, Woesum flips the traditional techno music formula on its head.

The drop falls into an intentionally minimalist anti-climax that pushes the track back to its original, stripped-back elements – percussion, bass and synth. Woesum slowly re-builds the tension, adding in spiky synths, clattering percussion samples and twisting countermelodies. The end result is a track that fuses together melancholic melodies and industrial house textures in a style that faintly echoes the scattered beats of Baltimore club music.

“Liquid Lotus” leaves behind the standard pattern of techno house music, and instead explores a refreshing world of progressive and hypnotic minimalist electronica.
