Papa Khan completes ‘Blossom’ EP rollout [Stream]
After posting a 26-second preview of his viral track “Rain” in June and releasing “Rain” And “Diary of a poor kid” in October, Papa Khan has now delivered the project from which they hail in full. That endeavor, his four-track Blossom EP, takes a broad step forward in the context of dubstep’s sound design and arrangement. The EP is uniquely fitted with vocal-less features, directing listeners’ attention to the emotional ambiance created by Khan’s multilayered chord progressions, cinematic pads, and arpeggiated melodic rhythms.
The EP’s two previously unreleased inclusions, “Utopia” and “Blossom,” follow a similar production pathway as “Rain” and “Diary of a poor kid,” but “Blossom” notably stands somewhat more apart given its focus. “Blossom” pays tribute to Khan’s father, whom he recently lost to cancer. Khan said of the song,
“‘Blossom’ is one of my favorite tracks from the EP. I think it’s the most special track aside from ‘Rain.’ The song was dedicated to my dad who died battling cancer [on] September 22. He was a great dad; the strongest person I’ve ever known. [I] never showed him the tune and I regret it forever. I wish I could just tell him that I love him so much before he passed away, but I can’t.”
Papa Khan’s sought-after bass sound should not be overlooked in 2021. The producer has directly supported MARAUDA on Insomniac‘s Bassrush showcase and has also been recognized by dubstep heavyweights such as Skrillex and 12th Planet. Stream Papa Khan’s Blossom EP below.
