We received a fair amount of submissions over the last 24 hours from bands and PRs, wanting to be featured as part of Blogathon. There were lots of pictures, band photos, links, effusive praise from other sites and numerous other reasons for us to post their song.
Only one email came with nothing more than a close up picture of what appears to be a jet black panther’s face, and a link. That one came from New York based producer Belanger and the link took us to this eerily atmospheric piece of instrumental electronica. The beat pulses like a heartbeat while synths flash and blink like a hospital ward full of electrocardiograph monitors. Minimalist glitches belie the pristine sparseness of the melody, filling it with flickers and flourishes of sharp digital beats and pops.
Belanger has risen to prominence for his remixes for some of mainstream pop’s favourite darlings, like Britney and Demi. Now he looks to be striking out on his own like a big cat on the prowl, waiting for his moment to strike. It sounds like that moment is now.
”Calico” is out now and available to buy on iTunes.
