“The samples I compiled together for this track gave me vibes as if I were floating in a pool noodle or an inner tube. They reminded me of a lot of the old soul music I used to hear when I was a kid swimming in my grandparents’ pool in Florida.”
Pablo Eskobear – Pool Parties
Pull out your sunglasses and swimming suits for this one, it’s the sonic equivalent of summer.
Through uplifting brass, groovy beats, and soulful samples, Pablo’s flair for digging old rare vinyls gives birth to five fresh tunes that found a home in the Pool Parties EP. In an attempt to recreate the warm & carefree feeling from memories of swimming in his grandparents’ pool with soul tunes playing, the US-based artist created a sun-soaked fusion of beats, jazz, and soul.
The signature sound of the artist is not the only memorable feature. In fact, one of the most unique aspects is his artist name. In a 1985 police chase drug smuggler Andrew Thornton II was on the run with containers of cocaine, which he dropped from a plane above a forest. Instead of cocaine worth tens of millions of dollars though, police found just 40 open containers and a dead black bear. The animal had feasted on the entire load and died of an overdose. The “Cocaine Bear”, later nicknamed “Pablo Eskobear” sure knew how to party! The music producer adopted the moniker as a darkly humorous way to carry on the legendary greatness of the animal.
Pablo Eskobear’s artistic goal to create drum-driven hard-hitting instrumentals lives up to its expectations with this EP. The five-tracker stirs up tasty pots of old-school boom-bap with a pleasant soul spice. Carrying a feel-good energy, the tracks transform all of the sampled retro gems and give them a brand new fresh aesthetic, meant to perfectly suit your summer adventures.
With its catchy groove, the lead single “Pool Noodles” will certainly set a positive tone for the remaining summer days with its release on August 17th, and “Comin’ To Steal Your Lunch” will then carry on with the groovy vibes two weeks later, on August 31st.
You can expect the whole EP on September 14th, 2021.
