Free Download | Gemini - What So Not (EP)
My interpretation of this piece is that it’s about two adolescents (boy and a girl) who want to experience the world head first, so they decide to run away from home. Throughout the project, the lyrics describe their journey through the obstacles of this “life” accompanied by sick beats and unique sound effects. From an easy slow riding come-up to the long awaited intense rhythms of the climax it all comes down to questioning if they indeed went too far away from home in Death Drive, “If I run too far pull me back, back to reality…”. In Oddity, when they come back from their exhausting journey, they experience an internal resolve as to how they perceive this reality differently now than from before.
The “banger” award of this EP definitely goes to Arrows ft. Dawn Golden, which starts off with a synthesizer and a basic 4/4 kick drum pattern, but when the drop comes it gets broken down by a very full bass progression with bells sneaking in through the background. Before the next drop the “boy” takes some time to confess to the “girl” that he is falling in love with her on their journey.
I recommend checking out this project for any electronic music fans, especially if you ever want to throw a glow in the dark dance party, or if you’re getting the snoozes at work and need a little pick me up to better your focus. No matter how you listen to this, the EP is filled with slow upbringings and hardcore breakdowns that are sure to fit somewhere into your daily routine. If you like what you hear be sure to throw What So Not a follow on Twitter and Soundcloud.
