“From ethereal bells to organic percussion, vocoded vocals to glitched out hi-hats, and even a trumpet that shreds (YES. A TRUMPET. THAT SHREDS.), it’s hard to believe this is Slaptop‘s first release.” – Kick Kick Snare
“Don’t mistake the carefree sounds for something overly simple, though, because his ability to blend together jazz, house, and pop into a well-balanced song is second to none.” – Hilly Dilly
Only three weeks ago, Slaptop’s debut track “Sunrise” came out and immediately shot to the top 5 of iTunes’ electronic charts and top 3 of the Hype Machine charts. Now, the track’s video premiered via SPIN, which called it “…influence of the electronic-funk of Daft Punk, Slaptop decorates the “Sunrise” with twinkly xylophone and super auto-tuned vocals that suggest we all “go out in the darkness and look for the sun.”
The single was revealed via This Song Is Sick, which gathered over 100,000 streams in the first 2 days.
