Premiere: AF85 – plazamayor (Side B)

UK label Tobago Tracks is a difficult one to pin down, characterised much more by the diversity of its output than by its ostensibly club-oriented roots. Attesting once more to that is their upcoming release plazamayor, an EP by Londoner AF85 consisting of three gorgeous ambient-leaning pieces. ‘plazamayor (Side B)’ is particularly transporting, a lush, synth ’n’ string-led unfurling leaving the listener – i.e. you right this very moment – enveloped in soul-tingling serenity. It’s a DAW-composed pocket symphony, achieving both intimacy and expansiveness. And if that weren’t enough, the track is bookended on the EP by an equally rewarding long-form piece and a collaboration with Subba fave Organ Tapes, both of which have our hearts fluttering and our bodies swooning. We have no doubt you’ll experience the same when you listen to the whole release immediately upon its 15 July release.
