Brassica, an electronic producer from Tunbridge Wells/ London, UK, also know as makes luscious 80s inspired synth-pop and Italo using analog synths, vintage drum machines, and traditional instruments. His latest release; EP ‘Hayat Zor’, was out 18th November 2013, on Civic Laden, and is available to purchase here.
With breathy vocals and pulsating, sharp synths reminiscent of a Jan Hammer production, opening track ‘Everything’ certainly makes us think of the College & Electric Youth song ‘A Real Hero’, along with influential 80s outfit Bronski Beat.
The EP includes four original productions and two remixes of ‘Everything’ from Gavin Russom and Petrels. ‘Hayat Zor’ is a collection on which emotional resonance and technical expertise sit side by side.
Below is an album sampler and a version of ‘Everything’ with talk-over at the end from a radio play, so head over to Spotify to listen to the full EP, or buy from the link above.
