Inspired by the very blue & clear lake on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington called Crescent, the EP is 4 tracks of the deep, natural electronic music that Grant began his career, but shows a a maturity of sound as he continues to evolve as a producer. The EP kicks off with "Mossy Corners" - a pulsing & haunting downtempo track, incorporating whispers of vocal samples from Manatee, a swirling synth line, with piano and acoustic guitar creeping in just under the surface, next up is the previously released single "Majestic Diver", a bouncy dancefloor jam with a hint of grit & warmth. "Thalassophobia" is a glittering, subaqueous joint with Grant's vocals chopped and warped both low and high, while "Pools" wraps up the EP with a sound evocative of late 90s IDM music, with a big drum break weaving in and out, building towards a vibey end. A beautiful return to form for this young producer. https://soundcloud.com/bastardjazz/manatee-commune-1
