Half Baked is the mastermind behind this outstanding project that goes by the title ‘TIDES’. With the help of Brian Bett and Sichangi, it is a wonderfully crafted 10 track EP that presents us with a full bag of exquisite electronic sounds…
1. Crystal Clear
Pure class with that intro. Positive vibes are already flowing and the track focuses our attention fully into the project to ensure we don’t miss a sound. Nice twist to the vocals also.
2. Lucid Dream
Lucid dream takes us to wonderland where we can’t help it but have happy thoughts. It is a great follow up from the first track. Amazing work on the drums as well.
The beat play here is very cool. The track has a very rich collection of sounds and a bass line that’s as good. The ending is also very well thought out.
The title explains everything. The track is as interesting as they come with its eccentric sounds.
5. Hold On
We’re surely strolling here – on a journey through the woods in a distant land and the beautiful sounds are our guiding forces. Spot on with the title. Great collaboration indeed.
7. Sailors Promise
Nuru’s amazing voice is on this one and she is as mesmerizing as ever. Her vocals are a great addition in the track; surely a refreshing point in the project.
I love the fact that it portrays perfectly the fact that it is the penultimate track of the EP and this goes to show the skill involved.
10. Feels (Bonus Track)
A toast to the last track of the project; an absolutely amazing intro which clearly indicates the stage we’re at in the EP. Though if feels like something is missing; it ended too soon.
Half Baked’s skillful play with electronic sounds is on display on the EP and he really outdid himself on it. He’s really good with the intros and sticking to the theme. I greatly admire the fact that he presents a lot of uniqueness in his productions and that’s a great plus as it proves his creativity and authenticity. You can keep an eye on him here.
