Birocratic's newest single leads the way for new Sundae Sauuce compilation, 'Chocolate Drizzle'

Brooklyn-based producer Birocratic has a longstanding and productive relationship with the Sundae Sauuce compilation series. It’s no surprise then that the artist’s new track, “holy smokes,” was selected as the lead single from the upcoming Chocolate Drizzle compilation.

Accompanied by a slick video of Birocratic performing the track on bass, drum pads, and midi controllers, “holy smokes” is a thoroughly funky composition that blends live instrumentation and electronic synthesis seamlessly. The release also emphasizes Sundae Sauuce’s guiding ethos: that of finding artists who approach electronic music with unique perspectives that make them stand out and elevate their productions and giving them a platform.

Chocolate Drizzle is set for release on June 28.

Birocratic – Zesty Surprise

Brooklyn-based producer Birocratic returns with the new single “Zesty Surprise,” a thoroughly funky affair that portends new avenues for the artist.

While he originally made a name for himself through the deployment of cleverly constructed samples, “Zesty Surprise” sees the producer lean heavier into recorded instrumentation. Slinky guitar chords announce the track’s intentions, while a groovy bassline percolates underneath and shuffling percussion propels the track forward.

Most intriguingly, though, is “Zesty Surprise’s” surprisingly complicated, yet easily accessible, structure — a mark of a maturing songwriting process that is sure to push Birocratic to new heights.

Birocratic – Handsome People

Birocratic-HandsomePeople-Chillhop

Brooklyn-based producer Birocratic has teamed up with the Dutch outfit Chillhop once again for his latest single, the mellifluous “Handsome People,” out on the latter’s Essentials – Spring 2018 compilation.

The producer originally made a name for himself with a deft ear for sampling and clever song construction, but has recently seen himself expand into new territories. Samples remain an integral part of his craft, but “Handsome People” sees Birocratic place a heavier emphasis on his live instrumentation — notably an electric bassline that bubbles on the track’s foundation and moves the production forward. Twinkling piano riffs skitter under dreamy vocal samples, while a shuffling drumbeat binds the track together.

“Handsome People” also sees a new shift for the artist, as he dials back on the funk and leans into a jazzier feel — though one that is still heavy on groovy danceability.
