Approaching the release date of his EP, Slow Magic released the title track off Closer 2 U in which he collaborates with Manila Killa. This follows soon-after ‘Somewhere‘ with Shallou and Woven In Hiatus which will also be included in the EP. Both tracks, and the body of work coming out on August 19, come to us via Moving Castle.
“’Closer 2 U’ represents the difficulties of distance and the importance of connection. I want this EP to encourage and inspire people to reach out to the ones they care about in a time where we are all feeling distant.”Slow Magic – Press Release

‘Closer 2 U’ begins to portray a different side of Slow Magic’s sound, departing from the typically glistening and brighter tones. On that note, it focuses on some spectral synth work with absorbed percussion. Topping off, the vocal chops make the production more homogenous and highlights the theme of the track.
