Beautiful You

Khotin’s albums New Tab and Beautiful You were slow-burn successes of 2018, quietly accruing enough momentum that the latter is now being reissued courtesy of Ghostly International. It’s easy to see why the Canadian artist’s work has struck a chord with people - Beautiful You is a gorgeous post-Chillwave haze, all lo-fi recording and dreamy synths. Think Pender Street Steppers if they took out all of the beats and just let the thing float.

New Tab

Pacific Rhythm might be a young label - at the time of writing (July 2018) their Discogs numbers fewer than ten releases - but the Vancouver outfit have already forged a reputation as selectors of impeccable taste. To a roster that includes superb drops from Flørist and D. Tiffany we can now add a vinyl pressing of Khotin’s 2017 cassette New Tab. This ten-track release is a collection of lo-fi synth ditties that sound like the Balearic beats of Tiffany with the drums stripped out. Cerebral and lovely.

Data Orb / Nessie's Revenge

The second release from Dylan Khotin-Foote aka Khotin (1080p, Normals Welcome etc.) under his Waterpark handle has the Canadian producer in fine form. 'Data Orb' is a tranquil breakbeat driven house cut with bleeping melody, spiralling and glistening synths and a smattering of acid. On the flip, 'Nessie's Revenge' bubbles from beneath, with delicate melodies floating to the surface and gets the ambient treatment with a bonus beatless version.

SpeedLine Connect / Sun Runner

Waterpark is the latest alias for producer Khotin. The nice thing about creating a new outlet for your music (complete with its own label imprint) is that you can build all the music around a particular theme: Waterpark seems to be going with a watery party vibe. Speedline Connect / Sun Runner feels like a good time on a sunny day, except that parts of the track have been submerged in the pool… 12” release.

Slim Media Player / Electric Sound Broadcast / Khotin
Rhythms Of The Pacific Volume 3

The third release in Pacific Rhythm’s series which features artists exclusively from Vancouver Slim Media Player, Khotin (previously released on 1080p, Electric Sound Broadcast - who has also released as Elka. This “Vancouver Sound” mixes acid breaks and squelches with deep house pads, chords and clarity.

Baikal Acid

Baikal Acid is a new set of dreamy house hybrids from Canadian producer Khotin. This limited vinyl 12” on the much-hyped label 1080p blends distorted 707 basslines with spaced-out ambient interludes. This is four tracks of lonely kosmische jams, melancholy samples and harsh kick drums for bedroom ravers.
