Featured Song: Ngaroma – Guacamole.
Rich and flavorful, “Guacamole” is as tasty as its name suggests. Brought to us by the relatively new New Zealand-based producer Ngaroma, this track is an impressive addition to the fresh creator’s repertoire. In the game of beat-making, it can often become difficult to detach yourself from the norms of the genre. However, everything about “Guacamole,” as well as many of Ngaroma’s other tracks, screams unconventionality.
Subtle percussion sits behind gentle synths – both of which layered beautifully with a humming base section – to create an airy vibe on the track. About a third of the way through, the muted base tapers off as an organ-esque soundscape takes its place. While all of these bass transitions are quietly happening in the background, the foreground occupies itself with a lush selection of breathy synths and dreamy leads.
It’s as if Ngaroma is a chef who meticulously crafts his guacamole with an array of unconventional ingredients, yet somehow manages to please the palette. Upon listening to his other fabulous tracks, it becomes clear that this cooking method of sorts is not only utilized on “Guacamole” – it seems as though his samplings, synths, and airy bass lines are all pulled from a common list of ingredients. He tweaks his recipes ever so slightly for each track, but they all share an undeniable commonality: they work.
