SR Track of the Day: Aerobix – Pomo
Sensible Reason favorite Pomo was first featured back in February, and has since made his US debut at the When In Robe Gibbz album release party in a Brooklyn spa. The Montreal-based producer creates quality beat music and smooth housey vibes; his tracks are deceptively intricate, subtlety gorgeous and happen to destroy dance floors. Pomo’s beats (which he gives most away for free on his SoundCloud) have permeated throughout the underground electronic music scene, partly by grooving their way into mixes by the likes of Kaytranada and Exmag. As a result of this extra publicity and his idiosyncratic producing style, Pomo has earned solid recognition despite having no official releases (yet).
“Aerobix” finds Pomo as polished as ever. The small but meticulously designed background details and impeccable placement of bass slaps and vocal samples give “Aerobix” especially high replay value. Juxtaposing deep synths, mysterious voices and intriguing chord progression is what Pomo does best. Each release leaves my ears increasingly hungry for more Pomo beats. Snag a free download of Aerobix below and keep an eye out for Pomo’s first official EP which will drop in May through HW&W Recordings.
