While the electronic music community is no stranger to bass music at this point, there is still much unexplored territory to be discovered. This new collaboration SexyTime can be seen as a step in the direction of intelligent dance music, as their productions have strayed away from heavy wobbles and towards more chilled out and thoughtful composition.
The two artists behind the new collaboration cheekily entitled SexyTime, are no naive kids. From the West Coast we have electronic guru MiMOSA, and from the East Coast is Trouble & Bass affiliate Sleepyhead. The two artists behind this collaboration are friends who have shared a long path, brimming with experiences, that have lead them to this combination of their creative voices.
Both MiMOSA and Sleepyhead bring not only the maturity of seasoning with them, but also the sense of rhythm and intonation that is unique to each artist. This is no hard-hitting dance floor album full of banging club beats. It is deeper, more meaningful, dripping with class and soul; with layers of sound intertwining impeccably. Its atmospheric energy employs mostly original samples, with synthesizer heavy modulation and spacey textures.
Tracks on the “Naked Poetry” EP include:
- You Can’t Hide
- Sour Grapes
- Lost In Translation
- Naked Poetry
- Always on my Mind
The blurry, dream-like quality of SexyTime is a surreal meander into the experiences of youth. The girls, the parties, the music, and most importantly what you take away from it when you wake up in them morning. The marked lack of aggressive basslines and obvious drops is a clear nod to the more ambient musical qualities that evoke sentiment in all of us. These more mellow tendencies are even soothing, reminding us of the healing power of music.
