ZHUKOSIS - SMOKE - Stereo Stickman



High quality creative production elevates this hypnotically ambient new single from ZHUKOSIS, the nature of which proves delicately soulful and rhythmically intense in equal parts.

Beginning with the distant melody of a vocal line, whispering poetic ideas that intrigue and connect for their humanity, the track slowly but surely brings in heavy bass and trap-style beat-work for a wave-like wash of energy – in between these more ethereal, synth-kissed instances of calm.

Emerging complete with a simple yet fitting set of visuals, depicting the animated smoker layered on top of a busy street scene, the American flag, and various other images that build further upon the transfixing effect of the music, SMOKE feels like a timeless trip hop offering with an edge of contemporary sound-design.

Introducing contemplation and skill united, the release highilghts the escapism-driven focus of ZHUKOSIS in an addictively likeable way – so much so that when the music stops the sudden silence is a little too much to bear. Therefore we replay, and replay again – an effective trait, and one that quickly lets the feeling of SMOKE settle into your consciousness for the long term.
