Fold - Netflix & Chill EP

  • Share
  • It's tempting to write off an EP with a title as frivolous as Netflix & Chill, but Fold's Aus debut is more musically mature than its meme-sourced name suggests. Its four tracks are impressively diverse: there's late-'90s New York hip-hop (like a sped-up DJ Premier beat) on "Calmer Mood," hard-hitting, chord-heavy house in the vein of WK7 on "Wallop," and "Dreamscape," an intriguing ambient sunrise track pinched by sharp bursts of jungle. Kassem Mosse's remix of "Dreamscape" doubles down on the original's splashing drum work. The other adjustments are minor, but they make a big difference. He slices a small piece from "Dreamscape"'s vocal ("I'm not going mad / I'm not going mad / I'm not going mad") and rolls it into a little ball, which keeps time on each bar as the beat threatens to run away. "Calmer Mood" and "Wallop" are sturdy DJ tools, but the B-side is where the magic happens.
