Boku is following up on his ‘Fortune’ EP with another single, ‘Epiphany’. Blending downtempo stylisations with chopped vocals and instrumentation, the production showcases eclectic inspirations. The track is available on all streaming platforms via Feel Good Lost.
The possible strength of the track lies in the production’s interpolation of diverse instrumentation. After opening with atmospheric elements and acoustic strings, you are met with a percussive break. Managing to keep a cohesive sound throughout, he goes on to include everything from cut-up vocal clips to synths as the track ebbs and flows.
Despite the mass amalgamation of instrumentation sources, the track keeps a tight focus and an optimistic disposition.
