Wabz ‘Sweetwater Creek’
Let the almost lyric-less wonder that is ‘Sweetwater Creek’ take you by surprise. The wondrous sculpting of this one is guaranteed to make your Tuesday a little bit sunnier.
WABZ is his name; a fantastic producer out of Melbourne. He’s brought you this gorgeous number, and he’s set to bring you quite a few more in the near future. Putting out his LP through Solitaire, Argyle will be at your fingertips on June 22, and if you’re that way inclined, there’s a stunning limited edition cassette up for pre-order on Solitaire’s bandcamp.
‘Sweetwater Creek’ is a bubbling brook (get it?!) of mesmerising beats. An oasis of humanised occupancies and a stunning array of rhythmic oral sounds accompany this piece across the expansion of its wake.
It’s carefully mastered, and even more careful in its selection and omission of sounds. Wabz has made something special here, and it’s definitely no secret that the producer is onto an eclectic sound of his own here.
‘Sweetwater Creek’ is hazy, pensive and incredibly light in its touch. Which is maybe why this one resonates so much.
