Brazilian born, Melbourne-based producer Walla C channels his heritage in his latest ‘Daylight’ EP, a five-track journey through his various production styles and musical influences.
Produced during the spring of 2018, ‘Daylight’ EP features a vibrant blend of soulful hip-hop beats and electronic grooves. The five tracks are sprinkled with synths and Rhodes, some of which are sample-based, but all rely heavily on Wallace’s own composition. Warm drums and intriguing rhythms weave through the entire EP. It allows the listener to travel through a tapestry of textures composed of synths, warm drums, heavy 808 drums, tambourines, and soft chords.
Of the EP Wallace says,
“The sounds are designed to be uplifting and the rhythms are upbeat. People can take whatever they want from the EP as long as they feel happy after listening to it.”
The EP is inspired by Wallace’s intimate understanding of Brazilian rhythms, jazz, funk, and samba. The track ‘Malagueta’, which is the Portuguese word for a household Brazilian chilli, opens the EP with progressive melodies and percussive baile funk vocals. His unique sounds are further influenced by his desire to experiment with song structure and synth lines, which makes the perfect soundtrack for chilled bedroom afternoon sessions.
In contrast, the lead single ‘Daylight’ is a groovy house tune with a syncopated broken-beat feel that makes you want to hit the dance floor.
