About The Song:
The third track from the Solstice EP is a musical representation of moving from fear-based thought to a more enlightened state of consciousness, Press and Release does just that – unfolds from a ‘pressed’ tension into a beautiful ‘release’ as it progresses.
Samples of newsreaders reporting the pain and suffering of our world, weaved in amongst gritty textures and growling distorted bass, are eventually interrupted by a voice that speaks of “accessing other levels of experience.” What follows is a drum and bass-meets-electronica climax of melancholy and meaning, decorated with beautiful piano and vocal refrains that sing, ending the EP on a crisp high note that is both exhilarating and hopeful.
About Visco City:
Influenced by Flume, Bonobo and Catching Flies – London producer Bobby Turner, AKA Visco City, creates melodic, ambient electronic music that strikes a balance between beauty and chaos – while invoking an inner sense of meaning for the listener.
Turner started making music at college, and this fresh creative outlet, paired with dubstep and drum & bass raves, ignited his passion for electronic music.
Fast-forward to the present, Bobby found a new love for the chilled-out, melodic side of the electronic spectrum, and Visco City was born.
After meeting Birmingham artist Ed Geater in 2020, Geater spotted his potential and Visco City quickly penned a deal with independent Birmingham label, Brox Records.
Turner’s debut release, Solstice EP, is a 3 track journey that carries the listener on a progressive, ethereal wave through a range of different textures and tempos.
With versatility and a talent for building sonic complexity while retaining that infectious, melodic simplicity, Visco City is undoubtedly one to watch in 2020 and beyond.
