London label childsplay is back with more dazzling club sounds this month, this time in the form of Shawn Cartier’s ‘Crazy Boy’ EP.
In keeping with the label’s high-energy, hyper-colourful aesthetic, Cartier’s four-track EP flits from futuristic electro into retro acid rave territory, with sugar-rush flashes of ghettotech and juke thrown in for good measure. The whole thing ignites a wide-eyed buzz, like watching a sci-fi flick for the first time as a kid, hopped up on cola.
‘humans’ closes the EP with a trippy acid electro flourish, all neon-hued and atmospheric; a soft, bouncy landing on an unknown planet. Check it out below.
‘Crazy Boy' is out this Friday 12th February. Pre-order it here.
