Color Plus – Cerulean Dream

There are certain artists that just can’t help but expand upon their genre, Color Plus is one of these artists.  Its been a while since the rolling hi-hats and pitched 808 bass drums of Southern trap music have infiltrated the electronic music scene, but I don’t think anyone has used them in their own specific context and style as well as Color Plus on Cerulean Dream yet.  Like Clams Casino, the only thing that keeps Color Plus’ music rooted in the ground and prevents it from floating into the world of completely abstract ambient music are his trap percussion tracks, but Color Plus differs from Clams Casino in that where Clams Casino’s beats often come off as heavy and dense, in between dreamy Zelda samples, Cerulean Dream seems paper thin, as if everything but the percussion tracks could melt away at the touch.  Its odd, but it seems the genre of Future Trap is already forming a spectrum; at one end the heavy, swagger filled beats of artists like M|O|D and at the other the airy music of Color Plus.  Stream the LP below, and then link to bandcamp below that to download with a “name your own price” option.  Favorite tracks include “”, “Ashore” and “Escape Rope”.
