Introducing a reverb-soaked arena of ethereal synths and trap rhythms – Jae Dev and 329SKY collaborate to impressive results, for the dreamy and hypnotic Space Coupe.
Skilfully uniting elements of contemporary hip hop with timeless aspects of trippy production and ambient sound-design, everything from the overall warmth and embrace of the soundscape to the mellow, thoughtful and sleepy vocal delivery feeds into this alluring, enchanting aura that Space Coupe presents.
Featuring short lines of personal anecdotes and more broadly accessible references alike, Space Coupe moves through various poetic bars of calming contemplation for the first two thirds, then unexpectedly shifts gears for a harder-hitting, more gritty yet still lyrically in tune and imagery-laden final verse.
The dynamic created by this evolution in character and pace comes in at just the right moment, before we resolve back to the looping simplicity of that hook and title concept. It ultimately secures the addictive, catchy aspects of the track, and most likely helps keep listeners coming back for more. No surprise then, that Space Coupe has already amassed over 25,000 plays on Spotify alone. Hopefully there’s plenty more music on the way.
