I find myself drifting outside of our scope on underground electronica almost on a weekly basis nowadays. I hope you all don’t mind. We are really starting to receive a lot of music to consider, and amongst those are naturally a good share that strictly speaking are not to be called underground electronica, at least not of the more deeper, submlime nature.
And here’s a track that I had to listen to several times, most of them while deciding that “no, there’s no way this track fits into our blog. I just can not“.
But something held me back. Each time. So I saved it for later. Then returned to it the day after, pressed play, and thought “ok, so it’s undeniably a cool track but it just isn’t, no it can’t be…“, finger on the decline button, pressed play once more… “Oh fuck it. I dig this track“.
Because I really do. Just listen to this thing!
pop!SUGAR – BBG
This is obviously from Asia. Singapore. I’m also a gamer and one of my favourite franchises is the Katamari – not only for the ultra-Japanese crazy gameplay but almost just as much because of the music. And I don’t know about you but I am so totally in Katamari-land when listening to this one.
It has that unique Asian pop music feel and I just so totally am dancing along on my chair here even while writing this.
And it’s really well produced too! Lovely loops and glitches, and the playfulness… Omg it’s just so HAPPY!
So, today is the day we step out of our dark underground dungeons and dress up in pink and pastel colours and big fluffy things and just have bright, shiny FUN!
Today we dig pop!SUGAR, and want whatever it is they got!
This track is added to our “Beatradar Selections” playlist where we gather all our selections throughout the weeks!
