Every so often, even the hardest of partiers need to switch up the pace a little (at least on the music front). So I was pleasantly surprised to stumble on this record, a prime example of Artist Intelligence Agency making the right promotion call. I wasn’t really big on chill trap going in, but I think I’ve been swayed to go down the rabbit hole.
Dutch remix pros Sensi Sye and Cresce crafted a lounge-friendly sound that has “afterparty” written all over it; the perfect ambience for a hookah bar type of late-night. The keys set a dream-like tone (I’m starting to realize I have a thing for rhodes pianos), and the intro of the bass melody and drum patterns add a nice contrast without disrupting the theme. Overall, Coughs & Sips has a smooth, mellowed out vibe with a nice tempo to it; you can either chill out or bounce to it depending on your mood. Check it out below and be sure to support.
