Bass music's Prodigal Son, Papa Khan, has returned with a massive four-track EP. Doubling down on the explosive success of his breakthrough single "Rain," the Indonesian young gun has unveiled BLOSSOM, a song-cycle of sublime, innovative electronic music.
Papa Khan's BLOSSOM EP is a natural fit on Marshmello's JoyTime Collective banner. Devoid of the saccharine flavors of Mello's earlier sounds, each of the record's four tracks knock with a riddim ferocity while remaining under a melodic umbrella. It's a formula that Papa Khan has concocted with precision, and represents a beautiful dichotomy for bass music fans looking for bass music with substance.
