It seems like an eternity since I’ve been able to write about music, but with college officially behind me and years of work within the music industry to be experienced, I’m finally back! My taste has rapidly expanded over the past few months as per usual, but I still find myself gravitating to atmospheric electronic joints, regardless of my newfound interests. Thus, it’s fitting that I stumbled upon a brand new cut from Arona Mane.
Titled “POTGS,” the track is an ethereal orb of grooves and good vibes, in part due to wonderful vocal contributions from Milan. While not executed in a traditional verse-verse-chorus-repeat format, her voice is chopped up into melodic and harmonizing bits that convey an unmistakably human warmth. Of course, the production chops that Arona Mane flexes to propel Milan are superb as well; listening on my treasured pair of m50x’s, every percussion hit is crisp, the bass line is driving yet not excessive, and most importantly, all of the moving pieces are allowed enough breathing room for the track to naturally flow. The two artists display such a fantastic cohesion that makes it feel like so much more than a one-off collaboration, and because of that, there’s little doubt I’ll be spinning “POTGS” well into the new year.
