I can always count on Gacha to calm me down.
When you’re dealing with landlords, a new job and an overactive mind, stress becomes like a helicopter, hovering over your week. And if you’re avoiding having a drink, a blunt or a hammer to the face, going to sleep is like asking a roomful of kindergarteners to meditate.
I don’t know how to meditate, but Gacha makes me feel like I do. With his consistently serene downtempo releases, the Georgian producer makes potions for restless sleep.
“Race In” has an active quality to it, like a monk climbing to the top of a mountain. With live drum samples, a singing synthesizer and a galloping pitter-patter of static leading us into the track, Gacha infuses subtle motion into those who don’t know where to turn. There’s no rush, but there is a destination. Why not approach calmly?
One foot in front of the other.
