Berlin-based Australian producer Logic1000 (real name Samantha Poulter) has had an ascendant couple of years, and released the four-track You’ve Got The Whole Night To Go back in January. If you thought that was a culmination, you were wrong, as she kicks on today with two brand new digital-only tracks “Safe In My Arms” and “YourLove”. She says:
“When I started working on this record, I had initially planned to make something slamming – some peak time summer anthems. But through the process of making them, I found a different side of my production – the tracks ended up a lot deeper than I intended, and I’m happy for it. They give me the feeling of warmth and nostalgia. This is a mood I was excited to land on, and I’m looking forward to exploring it further. This is house music for the morning. Not the morning at the end of the night, but the morning at the start of the day. ‘Safe In my Arms’ feels like it’s waking up, and ‘YourLove’ takes that energy and runs with it.”
Unsurprisingly, Logic1000 has a better hold on the mood and flow of these tracks than us, but at the risk of repeating the above quote, it is worth noting just how pleasantly uplifting and subtly motivating these songs are. Her description of them sounding like a new day is apt; the synth melodies of the laid-back “Safe In My Arms” feels like the sun beating down in the morning, giving everything a new-day shine, while there is the quiet bustling of the beats that suggests creatures of all forms preparing for whatever is in store. Following that, “YourLove” maintains a similarly easygoing pace but with a more insistent beat and explicit vocal samples, it feels like the day is really kicking into gear at this point.
