Nikko.Z's Dopamine White continues a strong start to the year by welcoming VegaZ SL and Imal SL to the label for their debut EP. Based in Sri Lanka, both VegaZ and Imal are early on into their journey's as electronic music producers, however they have both found solid footing in short order. With a combined discography that includes releases via BCSA, Droid9 South America, Nature Rec, One Of A Kind and SLC-6 Music, this is a duo that shows just how talented the up-and-coming crop of Sri Lankan artists are. Now continuing on that upward trajectory, VegaZ and Imal debut on Dopamine White with ‘Beneath the Surface'.
Beginning with the title track, VegaZ and Imal present a stylish blend of rhythm and groove. Warm beats and a chunky low-end power the foundation, while acid-like effects and ghostly soundscapes add depth and colour across the first act. Spanning over two minutes in length, a melodic centrepiece sits at the core of the journey, gently building anticipation through fluttery motifs and gaseous sweeps, before a quiet calm resets the groove for a driving finale.
The companion piece ‘See You on the Other Side' caps off the EP with a gorgeous reflective vibe. A touch deeper than its predecessor, it's a voluptuous groove and layers of clattering percussion which set the course for hypnotic lines and tranquil melodies to work their magic. Atmospheric swells and fragmented arps rise at timely moments as the story unfolds, perfectly setting the stage for another expansive centrepiece. Tastefully melodic, the interlude exudes a nostalgic warmth, before shifting mood as metallic arps unite and ultimately spearhead a glowing apex. It rounds out a quality two track offering from Vegaz and Imal, who make an excellent Dopamine White debut with their ‘Beneath the Surface' EP.
