A couple of my favorite artists in pluko and Nevve return to the EMPT pages with a straight up smash of a track that I can’t get out of my head. This one is called “need ya” and it’s layered electronic music at its finest with little touches like synths that twinkle away into the soundscape (think a massive kaleidoscope that you can hear) and a straight bumping hook. As usual, Nevve lays down next level vocals that elevate the track to even further heights as she sweetly proclaims “baby I need ya.” It’s all a recipe for a track that’s impossible to shake and immediately makes you want to press play again.
I recently wrote about cutting people off, but this time I’m writing about those we need. We’re individuals with our own perspectives, sure, but we’re also social creatures by nature. We need people around us who trigger those endorphins of love whether it’s platonic or romantic – they’re an essential part of what makes us tick from day to day. In a massive city like Los Angeles, it’s so easy to lose sight of those people when you’re caught up in the cycle of grinding at work day in and day out, especially when it’s work you love to get lost in. We owe it to ourselves to take a step back and show some love for the ones we need!
