It’s been quite the year so far for Mr. Mitch’s Gobstopper Records.
With big releases from the likes of Odeko, Tarquin and most recently Lloyd SB, the label has cultivated a new wave of up-and-coming talent, and cemented its position as a seminal contender on the scene.
Next up, the imprint has tapped Brooklyn-based producer Orlando for a four-tracker titled 'The Tide That Moves Me'. Fusing elements of dancehall, club and futuristic, soul-baring sounds, the cut follows the Gobstopper signature for emotionally-charged constructions.
Much like Mr. Mitch's, Orlando’s productions are rooted in real-world emotion and intricate sound design. “My work explores themes of landscape and environment and a constant longing for the unobtainable,” he explains in the press release.
On the melodic, hazy and warm 'The Smoke Descends', Orlando’s penchant for eerie experiments shines through. A slow burner, it’s an atmospheric track packed with cinematic highs and soft motifs.
‘The Tide That Moves Me’ EP is out July 28 on Gobstopper Records.
