An artist who has captured imaginations by contributing to seminal works from some of contemporary music’s most exciting names (Frank Ocean/Kali Uchis/Babyfather) and within this own forward-thinking output, Vegyn is an artist who has consistently helped to push the boundaries of the modern pop format. His new EP Like A Good Old Friend, due March 19th, will see his widescreen vision transform further; presenting his own warped take on dancefloor sounds imbued with a unique electronic emotion. After announcing the project with the time-stretched bounce of “I See You Sometimes” ft. Jeshi, today Vegyn unveils a new offering, “B4 The Computer Crash.”
A paradoxical cut of glitched 4/4 rhythms, “B4 The Computer Crash” buzzes and whirrs with seasick melodics and overlapping textures – employing that same frenetic yet meditative percussive signature that Vegyn has made his own. Simultaneously lush and lo-fi, the track slowly unfurls from its kinetic groove to reveal a sparsely populated hip hop instrumental in slow motion; the sonic walk home from the club, hazed soundscapes from the track’s original iteration lingering as memories from the communal ecstasy of the dancefloor.
Released via his own PLZ Make It Ruins label, Like A Good Old Friend is a new, six track collection of dancefloor experimentations that will consolidate Vegyn’s status as one of the UK’s most unique creatives – an artist who refuses to compromise in a way that’s endlessly imaginative while maintaining an insatiable sense of fun across a number of different mediums.
