Redolent is the second EP by the 18year old Norwegian producer Violet Dream, aka Johannes Nysveen Vagle.
While his debut from 2012 (when he was only 15) showcased some brilliant tracks that sounded like a blend of AIR and M83, his new work channels the spirit of artists like Mount Kimbie, Submotion Orchestra, The Drum and Bonobo.
Here’s what he has to say about the EP himself:
– Redolent EP consists of three songs that have evolved naturally over a long period of time. I’ve drawn inspiration from a lot of different places over the course of the production of the EP and i think that is apparent in the songs. It’s the product of me having done what has felt right at different stages in my personal and musical development and therefore i think it’s a bit difficult to classify in terms of genre. All in all I think it turned out pretty cool and I hope people will like it.
Keep your eyes and ears open for more material in the future. There are rumours about a debut full length, and if it’s as good as this EP it will be massive.
