On November 25, Canada’s “leading house and techno vixen,” Sydney Blu releases her ‘Bouncin’ EP on Playmobil with Mihalis Safras’ Material Series. Described as “strong, sinfully, contagious originals,” Bouncin’ delivers – you guessed it – bouncy house originals with a sleek techno edge. The tracks are full of the anthem-like rises and hard breaks that you’d expect from a Blu track.
“Bouncin,” — the title and opening track on the EP, is upbeat and addictive. It blends G-House vocals with softer, melodic tones, supported by a “sexy, chugging bass line with crisp, layered high hats.” The EP is bookended with the noticeably darker and softer “What I Need” keeps the high-distorted female vocals over a clever arrangement of sirens, bells and piano riffs over a dark, bounding bass line. “Jackrabbit” the middle track is the heaviest in terms of energy with a strong, thumping bass and a provocative and hilarious feminist monologue speaking to the female masses: “Because the man who is living to ejaculate, he’s in a predator mode.”
