Sinjin (Barcelona via Montreal) had spent a great deal of his time and energy throwing some of Montreal’s best parties, bringing big names like Brenmar, Canblaster, Jacques Greene to a small bar in the city, with either very little or no cover charge at all! This was made possible in cooperation with friends and collaborators Azamat B (ITFW) and Markus Garcia (LOL Boys).
The Lights EP impresses with opening tune “Shadows”, acting as a wonderful welcome for a new hero. There are sounds of crowds chanting and clapping alongside royal trumpets, drum rolls, and a beautiful harp before everything slowly evolves into beat-filled champion-themed brawl music.
Literally treated like a mini-album, this release is complete with intros, interludes and outros while holding a unified tone (in a consistent, yet, far from monotonous way). Expect to hear heavy bass and splattered hip-hop/R&B beats over triumphant horns and shimmering synth samples that sound like they once belonged to a magical casino on top of a brilliant snowy mountain. The perfect example of this genius is found on Crystal Dust, a song so good it could probably make Hud Mo jealous.
Out December 5th on the ever-rising label Pelican Fly, The Lights will do much more than simply carry Sinjin through to the next level of recognition, you can expect it to boost him to underground stardom! In fact, “Like That” (a three minute dance floor murderer) has already been getting huge support and was massively thrown down in Mele’s set at Boiler Room. This track is so powerful in such a small window of time, it’s just begging for a back spin!
