Today, Russia’s Biicla unleashes his EP Outside, his second-ever project, out on TOKiMONSTA’s Young Art Records.
Outside flawlessly fuses distorted samples, emotional bass lines, and soothing vocal loops. Biicla’s talent as a producer who is able to mix genres without missing a beat is remarkable, as they also consist of hypnotic lyrics. Outside reflects Biicla’s own style, which he’s honed over the years, and has accomplished way above the level. The track, ‘Outside’ is one stand-out in the record that really hounds down the EP’s theme and helps listeners to find themselves. As it was recorded way before today’s EP release, it’s still the top track of the project.
“I like to experiment and this release is no exception,” Biicla says. “The special thing about this release is that for the first time, I share my thoughts and experiences with you in the text. it is really difficult to sing in English, having a Russian mentality. I have lived in Russia all my life. And now I’m telling you about my thoughts in another language. It’s all really crazy. I was also impressed by the fact that after a few years, this single has not lost its relevance. I went back to work on this song and while I was doing it, I make three more singles that you will hear as part of the Outside EP.”
