Lowhitey – Zorza (MP3)

After dropping gems like a dumb thief in his native land, Polish electronic DJ/producer Wojciech Misiak has joined forces with Seattle’s Hush Hush Records to release his American debut Alone With My Thoughts. Orchestrating a suite of downtempo chillers, the album is drowned in radiant synths, minimal drums and cloying melodies that evoke undercurrents of tension and wonder. Subjective and introspective, the textural details and layer upon layer of sound that play out within Alone With My Thoughts lends itself wonderfully to intimate headphone sessions.

As the midpoint of the release, "Zorza" is gorgeously warm and pastoral. Enveloped in dreamlike atmospherics, the continual surging synth lines and samples create a powerful but peaceful rainforest of sound - calling out for listeners to get lost in its lushness. Aching with nostalgia, "Zorza" slowly unfurls in a grand, cinematic arc that makes for an especially cryptic listen and a craving for popcorn.

You can also stay up to date with the Lowhitey on his Facebook page or better yet pick up your own copy of the Alone With My Thoughts EP from his Bandcamp page. If you need anymore convincing, check out the aquatic awesomeness of his "When You Have So Much Love to Give" video below:
