Plastic Vanilla by Warm Natural

Plastic Vanilla, the latest EP from Warm Natural, utilises a muted palette of hollow synths and crackly beats to explore different emotional states. As Warm Natural, Miles Cosmo’s music probes areas of the human psyche that are difficult to describe. The title track Plastic Vanilla swings with a distant frigidity before opening up to an exuberant crescendo of grainy monosynths. This duality is present in all of Cosmo’s work, feelings of deja vu, faded nostalgia, and the call of the void, juxtaposed with playfulness and verve. There's a cautious intrigue that flows through this EP with Return pulsing through its runtime with alien machine rhythms, and Stages cycling through its many phases seamlessly with eccentric flair. Plastic Vanilla’s three tracks develop organically and with warmth and enthusiasm whilst maintaining an air of distant fragility and numbness. This is Plastic Vanilla.

What Are We Rolling For?

What Are We Rolling For? It's always good to pose a question.

EME's 3rd EP of original psychedelic music, sprouted from ideas on tracks produced between 2010-2018, from a time when purity levels were higher. This psychonauts' excursion is inspired by the cyborganic counter culture and relatable experience in back yard sheds. Using creative procrastination, giving things time to happen themselves, (to be an "equal sign" in the equations of occurrences), finally the tracks are untethered in 2022.

Roll the dice, be the llama, and come convulse to the frequency, the rhythm, the vibration and activate the mystic path to gland curdling abundance.
