About the Album

When listening through the “Fragments“, I believe Broey.’s depiction of it as “electrifying” truly resonates. With its upbeat tempo, infectious rhythm, and radiant positivity, this 6-track EP serves as the perfect accompaniment to the arrival of Spring.

Brimming with euphoric, feel-good vibes and irresistibly catchy rhythms, it’s virtually impossible not to be swept away by its energy.

“The track order on this EP is the order which I made them. So you can see how my thought process evolved across the tracks as I pull new techniques and motifs.”

Album Highlights

I absolutely love the opening single “Like That.

Inspired by a recent music festival, Broey. returned home with the sound of music well and truly on his mind. Thinking of ways to recreate the vibe of being in the crowd, he got to work on creating the single.

Its pulsating rhythm immediately grabs your attention, with its nostalgic vocal chops reminiscent of The Prodigy and their high-energy fusion of infectious beats and synths. The single is a fantastic opening track for the EP that has plenty of variation and sets the tone for the remaining tracks.

“Like That” was a big change for me in terms of sound as I made it after returning home from a music festival. I was thinking of ways to recreate something that reminded me of the vibe of being in the crowd at that festival. When I made Like That, I had no expectations of making an entire EP, but as I continued to expand on that sound and feeling, I ended up with this diverse collection of sounds that are different but still encompass my sonic fingerprint and theme.”

As I was listening through the EP writing this review, there was certainly one track that really resonated with me. Track three is titled “Wanted” and it’s one of the more downtempo pieces on the EP.

Though it retains the EP’s energy and pulsating rhythm seamlessly, its vibe takes on a more laid-back tone. This is achieved through the incorporation of gorgeous vocal melodies, delightful backing harmonies, and drifting filters, culminating in a serene atmosphere.

“After making “Run For Cover” (track two) in just under 24 hours for a tail’s (tailsxbeats) live stream event – I remember making a really cool sequenced synth sound that I used in “Run For Cover” that was so captivating to me, that I exported it and imported it into a brand new project. I then used that single stem and built other elements around it until it eventually progressed into “Wanted.”

The EP as a whole offers a captivating experience, clocking in at just under 25 minutes. As mentioned earlier, its infectious rhythm and pulsating bassline encapsulate the essence of dance music. Broey.’s production quality shines consistently throughout the EP, exuding positivity and an upbeat sound that captivates the listener.
