Bulgaria’s Svetnik Explores Broken Beat, R&B, Ambient, and Electro on New EP
'In Bloom' EP is out January 24.
Svetnik is back with his new EP, In Bloom, available January 24.
Written in 2019, In Bloom marks a change in sound and aesthetic for the Berlin-based producer. In contrast to his debut, Youth, which was full of experimentation, showcasing an intimate and cheeky side of his productions, In Bloom offers a broader, yet “more refined” sound palette.
The record oscillates between elements of broken beat, R&B, ambient, and electro, tied together during 24 minutes of playtime. As the title suggests, the production came along with a personal catharsis: “Writing In Bloom has been a liberating experience. It made me take a step back, re-evaluate and come to terms with a few personal demons, which I have been carrying along for a while,” Svetnik says.
We’re told to expect a “soothing, yet captivating listening experience.”
The release comes with a limited run of handprinted artworks, which are available via Bandcamp and feature a print of the cover photography.
Svetnik is a Bulgarian-born producer and DJ living in Berlin, Germany. He cites his main influences as Jimmy Edgar, Leon Vynehall, Sampha, and Roza Terenzi, and he has a few projects in line for 2020, “which will keep dancefloors busy and living rooms cosy,” he says.
