Future producer Rome In Silver just dropped his full EP Like Lightning, delivering four buzzing experimental electronic tracks.
Following a string of impressive EP singles, Rome In Silver is here with his newest EP on San Holo’s independent label bitbird. Setting his mission to stand out among the non-stop weekly release cycles, the The California-based producer delivers on that promise with an exclamation point with Like Lightning.
The eccentric producer taps into a wide array of sounds and influences over four tracks. The zipping bassline and careful interplay of the synths and vocal chops on “Fade (ft. POPCULTR)” deliver a high-energy start to the EP. “Yoko” follows with a playful future-bass feel, a growling bass, and intricately placed elements constantly shifting left to right. Rome In Silver’s focus on those exhilarating minor accents can’t be understated, as he explains,
“I never want to make music that people skip through to get to certain parts, which is why I add subtle details and unconventional structure changes to keep things interesting as the song evolves.”-Rome In Silver
“Fiore” is the perfect example of that mindset. After a drum-and-bass intro, the track drops into a medley of entrancing melodies and quirky vocal chops. On the EP’s final track, “You Don’t Know (what it’s like)“, the producer taps into his hop influences with massive percussion and extensive sampling. The track’s tempo shifts in the second half, closing the EP with an entrancing lounge feel. Though his tour with CloZee and MEMBA is up in the air due to COVID-19, Like Lightning is the perfect treat to keep us listening til we can catch Rome in Silver live again.
