I normally take note of tracks and releases that come out on Thursdays and Fridays, so I’m not stunned this launch from LEViT∆TE went underneath my radar, because it launched final Saturday. But as quickly as I discovered it, I’ve had it on repeat. Fatalism is all of the sound design you need and extra, wrapped in a pleasant midtempo bow.
Fatalism is LEViT∆TE at his best, drawing inspiration from contemporaries like G Jones, Eprom, or Tsuruda. You can hear it clearly within the snares in “In This City,” or the beat rhythm of “Pitchblaque” — the wild and frenetic sound design doesn’t overpower the precise energy of the synths and melody, which is a large concern whenever you’re going this tough.
The form of built-in interlude in “Wasting Your Breath” is exquisitely lovely, particularly main into the extra distorted drop within the track.
With this EP, LEViT∆TE simply locations himself on the identical stage, at the very least production-wise, as a few of the most revered DJs in that style proper now. Listen to Fatalism under.
