RBLN – “S​é​ance”


“S​é​ance” is a hypnotic, grooving electronic success from RBLN, an artist and producer based in Palm Springs, California. Serene keys meld crisply with a driving kick drum, complemented by sporadic bursts of soulful vocal charisma. The textured, rhythmically inclined production proves riveting throughout.

The track’s momentum is quickly apparent; hazy textural intrigue develops quickly into a tightly constructed rhythmic galloping and clanging keys. “Give it to me,” a vocal sample swipes forward with infectious entrancement. A dreamy, distant-sounding vocal shift appears with seamless cohesion in between the more enthused quickness. The deft vocal sampling is impressive in its various pitch implementations and lush integrations.

An “always on my mind,” vocal refrain appears with especially memorable qualities, as the drums assume a serene disposition. A final funky vocal invigoration closes the track with ardent satiation, effectively concluding the strongly memorable “S​é​ance.”

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Electronic.

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
