The 15th release from the Soul Trader Records imprint comes in the form of Data 3’s Molly EP, and it’s simply just two tracks. After having released on other labels before, this time they come forward on this London-based stable.
The first one is ‘Molly’; the title song which starts off with an intro filled with sonic beauty, made up of a compilation of clean and tranquil notes. Within a minute from the beginning; it drops with a heavy flavour; and it possesses a clicky, marimba-like melody that is made up of two inter-changing notes throughout.
On the other hand, we have ‘You & I’ with Blake; and it comes with an impactful vocal presence that grabbed my attention. Things get laid-back with this Liquid ballad. I admire Blake’s vocal flow over the track’s rhythm. The pad sound gives the song a nostalgic atmosphere, as it lightly floats over the whole mix.
Data 3’s creativity; and one-of-kind style when it comes to the composition of a song cannot be denied. With that said, Molly EP is sure to make you a Data 3 music lover and follower. Simply put, Molly EP is an undeniably good listen.
