Today’s find, “supersoaker.” is a brief instrumental by San Bernardino, CA producer ruffiankick., off of the upcoming release HIFIDELIC.LP1. A wobbly, woozy listen, the track features languid keyboard washes diced into feathery tendrils by a halting, boom-bap-on-codeine beat, augmented with incandescent bursts of synthesizer and a glorious wah-wah bass line. It sounds like what would happen if chillwave decided to go hip-hop for a few minutes. I’ve always been a fan of out-there instrumentals in the vein of artists like J Dilla and Knxwledge, so this one was right up my alley. No matter where you listen to “supersoaker” (I’m currently in a boujee coffee shop surrounded by gossiping yuppies), its dreamy sonics will cause your environment to feel slightly, pleasantly surreal.
