Hiding away in his own, colorful corner of SoundCloud, Whereisalex has spent 2016 becoming one of the most consistently engaging (and criminally slept on) underground producers in the scene. He’s turned out dozens of inspired bootlegs and remixes, proven his capacity for original work with the Internet Theory EP, even given Flume a run for his money with a scorching cover of “Lose It.”
Not content to rest on his laurels, the enigmatic beat maker is closing out the year with another exquisite release, the tantalizingly restrained “Seasonal Depression.” More ethereal than elegiac, the crisp synth leads of the track swirl around dreamily, guiding the listener through progressions of airy, stirring chords, and bright, clipped drums. “Seasonal Depression” is a subtle, emotive, and spellbinding track, and further proof that Whereisalex is a name worth knowing.
