Mary Lake - C Pad

  • Slicker than your average ambient outro.

  • On Amsterdam artist Mary Lake's debut EP, Askim, she spends the majority of her time exploring hard hitting techno. From the jittery hits of bass on "Teresa Drive" to the distorted drums of "Askim," these are late night weapons. But my favorite song is "C Pad." While ambient outros are often afterthoughts, "C Pad" is lush and rich as a range of melodies move across its central arpeggio. It reminded me of "A Window" from upsammy's debut EP. And if upsammy is anything to go by, "Pad C" is a promising hint that we'll see Lake capably explore music both on and off the dance floor.
