Freshly unearthed from Edinburgh’s vibrant music scene, Paradise Palms Records presents a hearty serving of recreational electronica: the first offering from ‘Wake Up!’
Laden with rolling synth lines and vibrant textures, ‘Joy of Me’ is an announcement. Wake Up! displays a clarity of purpose with this debut single; a slow building track that transports the listener, through various cycles and phases, into luscious sonic landscapes. Deep baselines drive the song, guiding you through a mirage of samples and rhythms that characterise the track’s alternative energy. Mix in a thudding kick and wistful vocals, and you’ve got a track that creates vibrations perfectly paired to the pulse of summer.
On remix duties, Makeness delivers a Dub take. A transformative repurposing, Makeness captures the energy of the single; laying out the ethereal pads against raw bass licks. With this edit, ‘Joy In Me’ becomes a peak time weapon, packed with intricate loops and moments of ecstatic relief: it’s set to burn dance floors.
