Approved: Becoming Real – Snow Drift Love

Becoming Real

Becoming Real last appeared in the Approved slot in November 2010 with his ‘Spectre’ EP, a collaboration with East London rapper Trim. Having enjoyed an acceptable level of reverie since then, he ended 2011 by supporting SBTRKT on tour, but over the last twelve months he’s been a little light on new music. It’s alright though, you can release the arms of your chair and wipe the cold sweat from your brow, he’s back with a new single, ‘Snow Drift Love’.

Taken from ‘Solar Dreams/Neon Decay’, his forthcoming mini-album, ‘Snow Drift Love’, it shows he’s not been resting on his laurels since his last release. From its ominous opening loops, which runs underneath it throughout, it quickly becomes a skittering rush of cut up vocals and warm synths. It may be his most positive sounding work to date, but it still has that outdoors-on-a-dark-street-at-night feel that runs throughout his productions. Just on this occasion it’s summer rather than winter and you’re nearly home.

It’s not due for release until May, but you can stream and download the track right now and for free here:
