Birocratic – Passage (Original Mix)
New Jersey-based producer Birocratic has proven to be an up-and-comer to keep an eye on. He’s made a couple of appearances on our Sunday Morning Medicine and recently released a track on GRiZ‘s label All Good Records. Keeping the momentum rolling, the producer debuted the lead single from his upcoming EP Replaced, entitled “Passage.”
Openly inspired by jazz, Birocratic commences the track with a somber chord progression played on electric piano. A thudding kick drum, skittering hi-hats, and various morphing synths soon join in before the production features a brief section focused on processed vocals that lightens the affair. This crescendos into the production’s climax where the producer really leans into the sashaying backbeat while opening things up, at once increasing the already potent danceability while also significantly pumping up the energy.
