Philadelphia is unleashing its might this week in full force. In the long list of local releases is this tribal new collaboration from Philly producer RVLVR and Knoxville based Johnathan Thomas. The single, “Resolve” has a throwback jungle beat that’s heavily reliant on organic percussion. It’s just so hard to resist bongos. The two musicians continue to layer new, more futuristic production on top, piece by piece. Digging into minimal composition techniques, steering clear of any huge, epic club drops, “Resolve” still brings plenty of energy to the dance floor. Deep, ambient bass layers and distant synthesizer bloops create a thickly apparent atmosphere of audio, driven by the consistent patter of booms and claps resounding from the lower percussive sections.
