“Visions represent what I see for my life going forward. A calming sense of goals to reach and fun to be had. On the other hand the second single “Reality” has almost a melancholic feel to it, representing the doubts and fears I have about the future. The two releases fit how I have been feeling lately as I get older. On one hand I am excited for what the future holds and on the other I have anxieties for the challenges I will have to face.”
Paklite – Reality/Visions
The name Paklite has been increasingly ringing louder in the beat scene for the past couple of years, and his regular appearance on Spotify and Apple editorial playlists has resulted in millions of listeners becoming acquainted with his unique brand of chillhop. On his latest singles “Visions” and “Reality” however, influences from future beats and texturally rich lofi are tossed into the mix in a manner that compliments the narrative of both tracks. The Arizona-based producer thematically touches on a subject we can all relate to… Time.
The concept of time and our “Visions” for the future are part of the story behind this comforting single. Paklite expresses what he feels about the future through a serene chillhop instrumental that oozes a feel-good sense of optimism. On the other hand, the follow-up release titled “Reality” leans towards melancholy as it represents the doubts and fears about the future. The two releases serve as a catharsis for Paklite and they beautifully encapsulate the emotions that arise as he gets older.
They’re released via Stereofox Records and not only do they exhibit a different side of chillhop, Paklite also leads listeners down a path of deep introspection thanks to the emotive essence found in his work.
