Delicate electro from another newcomer on Midland's label.
Glissando is key to the Amsterdammer's sound, allowing his spry melodies to glide between nostalgia and glossy optimism. These swooping lead lines were the icing on the delectable cake of last year's "Skyfall," and they pop up a few times on Outcome. On "Transit" they ride over coasting electro. On "Disk," the EP's standout, they accompany a dreamy halftime beat. Dance floor daydreaming is kind of Tracey's thing—you can imagine his music soundtracking a moment of introspection at some idyllic festival—and on the B-side the producer explores two ways of travelling without moving. "Outcome"'s breakbeat is energetic but static, while shimmering arps try to lift it gently upwards. On "1999," the electro beat is more timekeeper than propulsion. Your feet might be moving to it, but your attention is on the starry pads twinkling above.
