Featured Song: Lotus – Waves.
In the wake of the “future bass” movement, a prototypical equation for success has emerged: lush saw-wave synths + crisp percs + driving 808s + interspersed foleys [homemade sound effects ranging from the now ever-present sound of running water to the rustling of leaves] + intro/break/outro melodies = the adulation of future fans the world over. The inevitable result is a whole lot of songs which sound more or less the same.
However – and although the aforementioned elements of the patented future sound are contained therein – “Waves” manages to stand out from the crowd on the basis of its production quality, sound design, and structure. The song features some great piano riffs and string-esque plucks which, combined with masterful, calming synths, deliver a unique result that is equal parts serene and invigorating. With 22k+ plays in the span of just under a week, this LA/Belgium duo is primed for a rapid ascent atop the SoundCloud game and beyond. Give the song a listen below!
