What You Were Meant To Bring
Seldom There In Time Of Need
Life Must Be Such A Breeze
I’ve had the pleasure of witnessing a rare Bookworm performance last summer at the Camp Bisco Silent Disco in Mariaville, NY. What a treat it was! Bookworm has been working heavily with Two Fresh and their company LabCoat. He has also been a part of the lineup for many of Mindelixir‘s Bass Church events, playing with Joker, Mux Mool, Fast Nasty, Clicks & Whistles and more. In September 2011, he played a Blue Mood Productions event with Zeds Dead, Bonobo, and Phaeleh at the Valarium (Knoxville). As he continues to play more events and release new music, his fanbase grows immensely! 3/26/12 marks a new checkpoint for Bookworm; he releases his latest EP, Outnumbered by Colors: Saturation. Immediately after a few moments of track 1, vibes were set and I needed to share after fully listening and taking in his musical message. From downtempo drum & bass to downtempo 808s, this jazzy, anxiety-relieving EP is a guide to peaceful thinking. “The Breaks” opens the EP as a lovely prelude to “Book’s Theme“. I would fully recommend this to any who meditate, practice yoga, or who just appreciate beautiful soundscapes that blend with any type of future beat. “Book’s Theme” continues the vibe and even adds more emotion with his catchy synths. His interlude is soulful and refreshing; try to ease your mind! It works! After the minute-and-a-half long interlude, the BPM picks up a bit with “8BBS” – I call this mind expanding dance music! You can’t help but to move your body to the beat though the vibe stays ambient-like. “The Diver” reminded me of one of the artists we are working with, Illegitimate Children – dark and inspiring. This track is filled with love and emotion on a more darker side. Becky Ribeiro is featured on the closing track, entitled “Antidote“, one of the finest tracks I’ve heard in awhile. Bookworm adds heavier synths and a quality, full throttle drum & bass sound. I then thought of “Open Page“, a track featuring Lenzman and Riya, a similar downtempo drum & bass tune. With the vocals of Becky Ribeiro added over the sound, it comes out to be very magical. Overall, Bookworm has produced a beautiful EP and on top of that, it’s FREE on labcoated.com!
