5ubaruu & saves: S5

Both of these producers are unknown to me, but they’re part of Landline Collective, which also includes several neo-jungle/breakcore/rave artists that I’m into, such as Nanoray, Windowshopping, DJ Klaptrap, and Bye2. This EP is short but loaded with emotions. 5ubaruu’s “parisian skyline” mixes haunting choral vocals, sparkling melodies, and some brutal choppage and break scattering. Much of this is comparable, with breaks often diced into micro-shreds while the textures are sweet and glimmering. Both solo tracks by saves are a bit hazier, but eventually come through with some sunlight-soaked midtempo breaks. And the finale “moving on” is just simply gorgeous.
