“Full Lotus” is a smooth, progressive slice of New York/Colorado-based producer MALAKAI’s upcoming EP Bayou Dusk and undoubtedly embodies the release’s nomenclature. With its use of pulsing synths and light xylophone-like touch, the track starts off with an almost ethereal air but steadily crescendos into its breakdown before a more relaxing harmony of the aforementioned elements. Energy is injected and gradually released by song’s end, demonstrative of a musical approach that aims to continuously surprise listeners throughout their several minutes of attention and is oft-forgotten in an industry increasingly saturated by predictability and uniformity.
Bayou Dusk drops on April 20th and with “Full Lotus” having given a first taste of what to expect, make sure to check out the EP at www.ThisIsMalakai.com once it’s out. You can find out about the free showcase in NYC before the release here.
