Wolfey brings to light his second entrancing EP
His music is a combination of every kind of electronic dance and pop music. He describes his work as conveying “an internal struggle between cynicism, disillusionment, and misanthropy on the one hand, and confidence with respect to the potential of human consciousness for awakening, refinement and expansion on the other.”
Alexander Wolfe, known by the moniker Wolfey, is a DJ and producer based out of Vancouver, B.C.
Despite his relative obscurity, Wolfey’s first EP Sleep Country released Christmas 2011, was met with enthusiasm by a handful of taste-makers in the world of electronic music, including the likes of Dan Foat – a talent scout at R&S Records.
His new self-titled EP, which comes out Nov. 26, consists of only two trippy and trancy tracks.
“Local Traffic” is a slow, almost trance like track. It has a very Latin vibe to it. Voice cuts punctuate the song, shaking you out of its spell before you’re dragged back in. The song is like a quiet storm, held together by a simple drum and clapping percussion.
“Samsara” is the culmination of the storm that builds in “Local Traffic”. Heart-beat bass, and existential voice clips, combined with an electro-pop feel. The sub-title of this song is “This World of Radiant Beings”, and this song is indeed that. This is the song to start your day too.
There is an interesting dichotomy in this EP, an almost night and day thing. “Samsara” is the song you go out dancing to, and “Local Traffic” is what you listen to in the car on your way there to create suspense for the night.
