Upcoming Irish DJ/Producer Boku returns with his “Fortune” EP out now on Feel Good Lost. The first track to kick things off the EP is “Meandering,” which begins with an audibly mellow tone, featuring the light playing of a piano alongside contemplatively entrancing ambient production elements. The tune effortlessly evokes a sense of awe as if one is just waking up in the early hours of the morning nature whilst letting their mind wamder. The driving beat, infectious rhythm, and repetitive vocal cut of the track maintain a subdued energy, serving as a great high-octane counterpart to the rest of the song’s softer aspects.
The second track, “Enough For Now” showcases the producer’s eclectically solid production prowess. Atmospherically enticing, the shimmering original production places a strong emphasis on sound and its calming effect, with a shiny melody carrying the track’s restrained energy throughout its duration with ease.
Lastly, the lead single and final track on the EP “Fortune” rounds out the release. It features dreamy synths and an upbeat ambiance combined with heady vocal chops are once again introduced into the space alongside a more propulsive, lively beat. Infectiously pensive from start to finish, it’s clear that Boku effectively designed his latest opus with the sole intent to relax and calm the listener’s mind, essentially presenting a sonic respite from the harshness of reality.
Boku told us that “This EP was a very healing project for me and the track order of the EP plays out in the same order that it was written. It was me prevailing through a difficult time. We can all get lost at some stage and you have to work to reclaim your purpose. These tracks really helped me to refind mine.“
