Pulsing synths, meant to sync with your heartbeat in those precious moments of calmness – this is balcony EP.

After his debut with Stereofox Records called haven EP, Vancouver-based producer kyoshi is back with yet another 4-tracker, taking the concepts of the previous release to another level.

The importance of having a place that connects you with the outside world, in times where we’ve never felt so disconnected, shines through on these mellow tracks. By looking at the balcony as the border between inside and outside – the two spaces we’ve started to distinguish ever so clearly – kyoshi hopes to inspire coping with the struggle in a healthy positive way.

The title track "balcony" has these gorgeous keys, hazy guitars, and gentle beats, all with a slight melancholic note. But also kind of bright and utterly calming. kyoshi elaborates on the project:

This EP is inspired by those lazy days spent relaxing or unwinding at a personal happy place, which is especially important during the difficult times we live in.

Whether it’s a balcony, a front porch, or at the beach, this release is about representing the comfort of those places and their healing effect. Sonically, balcony is part of my journey experimenting with introducing more electronic influences into my beats.
