Birocratic – Overexpressed (Original Mix)
New Jersey-based producer Birocratic first made his mark on DA in our Sunday Morning Medicine series with some sample-heavy collaborations and originals. Now with a career partly launched due to his productions appearing in a series of videos on Buzzfeed, he seems poised to take the next step and evolve his sound simultaneously.
His latest release comes courtesy of GRiZ‘s imprint All Good Records, his track being the third entry from their methodically rolled out Fresh Baked compilation. “Overexpressed” continues the trend seen in a previous original “lullaby of the sea” where samples and original synth patches combine to form a spacey, groove-filled production. The tempo is never pushed, instead allowing clever laying of varying elements to seamlessly amp up the energy as the track rolls along. From a fairly sparse intro, the track crescendos into an ecstatic, future-tinged high point, before receding back down as the tune plays out.
