2014 has been a strong year for the glitch/trip-hop collab The Geek x VRV. Hailing from Paris, the two have a knack for incorporating glitch rhythms, choppy samples with electrifying synths that tie to their productions together into incendiary productions no flame retardant can propel. Going into 2015 the duo are stoked to release their latest project The Electric City EP via funkmaster GRiZ’s newly found label All Good Records.
Today EARMILK has the privilege of debuting the first single off the eclectic EP sharing the same name, “Electric City.” This is a bit of a different style for the Parisian duo, toning the tempo down and playing with melodies that grow and disappoint like fog descending on a city. This single is laden with groovy melodies entrenched in light percussive beats that will have you feel like your cruising on Rainbow Road with Mario and his fellow constituents. Grab the lead single as a free download below and stay tuned for the EP’s release on March 2nd. They have announced a handful of tour dates to mark their US debut so be sure to check them out below and catch them when they come to city near you.
