Not Not Fun imprint 100% Silk has decreed Ben Winans as a “San Fran synth sensei” –¬†that, my friends, is an enviable title. On Stillhope, Winans as Roche carries on the reputation and tradition 100% Silk holds¬†for that aquatic and bouncy¬†house music that takes us back to the days of yore – the 90s. “The Medicine,” with its rolling drum machine, its shimmering cymbal hits, its glistening synth chords, and its manipulated wordless female vocal sample makes you want to go to the nearest aquarium and hold a booming party so everybody can relish in its atmosphere. “Stillhope” has the beginnings of a vaporwave song but it evolves in to a house track ever-so¬†slightly reminiscent of Daft Punk or Modjo. “Stillhope” ends up¬†quieting down to finish¬†with a whisper. Check out both tracks below via the Soundcloud streams and see what you think of them. Cheers!
