shak. - "Only Now" [Premiere]

Sometimes, it's ok to just not give a damn about anything. When those certain times come, you'll need an audio stimulant to help you coast in low-gear. shak. is virtually unknown to the public ear, but that will surely change sooner or later. He's a producer who can make music that you can let your mind cozy up to when you just need to close your eyes and draw blanks. Think of it like ambient chillwave, with sprinkles of eclectic organic effects tossed in for the decor. shak. is fond of utilizing a clean, atmospheric guitar to complement his chill out style. It's simple, with modest layering and seemingly simple arrangements for a deep level of serenity.   

Today, you'll get to hear his latest smoothie, "Only Now" off of the upcoming EP Slow Wonders, released via Bad Panda Records. The tune starts off with a low pitched synth, then proceeds to dance with the electric guitar and the echoing ambiance. The three slowly intertwine with one another throughout the tune, until a static filled bass shakes the foundation towards the latter half of the song giving it a considerable amount of weight.

Clear your mind below.
