Slushii closes out 2018 with release of sophomore album, ‘DREAM’Slushii Rukes

Sophomore albums represent an opportunity for artists to delve deeper into their respective sounds and to refine or even redevelop their sonic styles. Slushii‘s second full-length album, DREAM, arrives as the product of much in-studio introspection, which is audible in each one of the project’s 16 tracks. The contemplative nature of DREAM, however, will be unsurprising to Slushii fans, given the producer’s detailed announcement of the then forthcoming production back in November. “This time around I wondered what it would be like if I was 100 percent honest about my feelings in my music, and actually let my emotions and true self show,” Slushii wrote when he originally shared the news that a follow-up to Find Your Wings was on the way. “What you’re getting [in DREAM] is the darkest, and most nostalgic music I’ve ever released,” Slushii added.

Familiar elements of the upbeat, bouncy sound that Slushii spread across prior releases like 2017’s Out of Light, and earlier singles like “Twinbow” still glimmer on DREAM cuts. The gossamer, twinkling tones that originally endeared listeners to Slushii’s music revel in an airy optimism of sound on DREAM, where they co-exist among mid- to downtempo beat constructions, rather than the faster-paced arrangements that characterized previous Slushii productions. Representative of a musical approach that largely diverges from past Slushii showings, DREAM signifies a difference in Slushii’s creative process, and beyond that, an overall maturity and versatility of sound that beams in the soundscapes that collectively comprise DREAM.

Slushii showcases ability to produce multiple genres in debut album, ‘Out of Light’

Many artists are focusing on releasing singles as opposed to full albums, given the shift away from CDs toward radio hits and streaming. Slushii has decided to go all in and released a 13-track album, Out of Light, on Aug. 4.

Slushii experiments with multiple genres finding a way to infuse his signature style with each experimentation in his debut album. Not only does he show the breadth of his production abilities in the 13-track compilation, but the producer himself was the vocalist for the entire album. Slushii fans have heard a few of these tracks before the album’s debut, including “I Still Recall,” “Dear Me” and “Step by Step.”

A few highlights:

“Someone Else” is a groovier housier sound that is a new vibe compared to Slushii’s previous releases.

“Melting Over You” verges on Moombahton with a beat sure to take over festival and club sets.

“My Senses,” while not Moombahton, combines pop lyrics with a Caribbean drop to give the album another track out of Slushii’s usual style.

“Out of Light” is the title track of the album, beautifully combining sounds, synths, and Slushii’s vocals for a track sure to become his next big hit.
