The hazy, chill-out vibe has been updated with a more dynamic direction and jazz-inspired flexes on keys, strings and synths
UK composer Robert Burbidge has taken that Mark Twain quote and run with the idea he’s gone back in time to rework one of his first tracks under his previous moniker, Rubberlips.
In its original incarnation, ‘Lagoon’ was a six-minute blast of shimmering chill out, a Balearic Cafe Del Mar-style tune that revolved around Robert’s trumpet riffs.
Fast-forward nearly a decade, the track has been subtly re-titled ‘Beluga Lagoon’ and reimagined with a fuller, richer sound. The hazy, chill-out vibe has been updated with a more dynamic direction and jazz-inspired flexes on keys, strings and synths. Add in swaying percussion from Alex Johnston, Dan Hudson’s Samba-smooth drums and a pulsating bassline from Ian Stanford, and ‘Beluga Lagoon’s update is a more powerful and dynamic reworking that veers towards colourful sunset Samba.
‘Beluga Lagoon’ is the latest single from UK composer Robert Burbidge who has been on excellent form for several years now, creating spine-tingling music that crisscrosses genres and – thanks to his frequent collaborations with writer/vocalist Winter in LA – borders.
‘Beluga Lagoon’ is set to be released June 15th and will also include several remixes. Later on in the year
