Sailor & I and Eekkoo unveil ‘Letters’ EP
Alexander Sjodin’s indie electronic project, Sailor & I, was built upon the dichotomy of the two wills inside a person. Each release under his artistic name has followed this theme, and his next joint effort, Letters, alongside techno force Eekkoo, does just that as a two-song EP.
Comprised of “Letters (Lower Case)” and “Letters (Capital),” it’s clear from both tracks that the two producers find harmony as their styles – though rooted in opposing genres – converge. “Letters (Lower Case)” relies more heavily on Eekkoo’s realm of spry techno percussion and mind-warping synth trills, while Sailor & I’s atmospheric synth tones do have their own subtle presence. “Letters (Capital),” on the other hand, embodies the cheerier atmosphere Sailor & I typically constructs, yet Eekkoo’s impressively clean production is evident to those with a sharp ear.
