Kid Smpl, “Pulse”

A starting-and-stopping rhythm gives this 22 year-old Seattle newcomer a unique outlook on what beautiful electronic dance should be. This track, and the video, move along horizontally. At first, you could be forgiven for mistaking the cut-out film of rocks and waterfalls for being in the shape of a sound wave – the photos become skinny as the music slows – but eventually they open up and start mirroring all over the place. The track is featured on Kid Smpl's Escape Pod EP, on Hush Hush records which you can stream gratis here.
