Gladkill dispenses second EP of 2022, ‘Cold Comfort’
After opening the year with his Ghost in the Machine EP, released on February 25, Gladkill is doubling down on the extended play format with his second of 2022, the Cold Comfort EP. Gladkill’s mid- to down-tempo technics stretch with kinetic ease across five tracklistings, each of which sonically interlock, making for a seamless listening experience. The Cold Comfort EP is cohesive and fluid, evincing Gladkill’s ear for melodic, bass-ridden productions that can maintain individuality while existing within the framework of a larger project. Gladkill’s penchant for bass is perceivable throughout the five-tracker, but is especially pronounced on “The Way You Like” and “Waterways,” which compellingly lay the groundwork for the EP’s close “… Fragile.” The producer’s latest, distributed via vibe.digital Recordings, can be streamed below.
