Noctilucents 'Do Without You (Pitch’s long mix) (Tobago Tracks)
Watford-based label a Tobago Tracks have tapped Singaporean artist Noctilucents for their latest release. The poet and producer brings a welcome lightness to the catalogue, which is best exemplified by the record’s A-side. ‘Do Without You’ (Pitch’s long mix) bumps along at a januty pace thanks to its mix of sweet synths and mallet percussion. The sampled vocals, from an upcoming anime adaptation of Tomihiko Morimi’s novel The Tatami Galaxy, provide further warmth.
