Listening to Powder is like watching a synchronised swim routine. Agile, rhythmic movements appear as organic as they do complex, her sound as exhilarating as it is weightless. Patterns erupt and blossom while hypnotic ripples course from an electrifying core – Lush melodies dart and weave around propulsive beats and fluid bass grooves.
That sense of unity and togetherness extends into her new release on Tim Sweeney’s Beats In Space Records. As part of the respected New York label and radio show’s ‘... In Space’ series, Powder has sculpted a mix comprised of the sort of ecstatic house cuts you exchange beaming grins with friends on the dancefloor to, ambient gems for an easy take-off and landing, and deep groove mutations that wrap around one another seamlessly.
