If you follow this blog you know that I’m an avid and betrayed Justice fan. They were the tits when I first started getting serious about electronic music and I devoured everything they released. The following years of silence have not been kind as I have yet to find an artist that I relate to as closely.
This is where Turkish producer Opptimo comes in. His Travellers EP was released last year on La Bombe but was not discovered by me until today. The song that sold me was “Locate”,a beepy, arpeggio heavy piece that infuses ethereal sound with a crunchy, heavily processed piano chord progression. The piano is distinctly Justice-like and immediately turns the song on it’s head after the ominous introduction.
