Brooklyn based electronic artist Jeremy Malvin, who goes by the name Chrome Sparks, has announced a new EP “Be On Fire” to be released Jan 1st on the Ninja Tune imprint Counter Records. Expect the same all-inclusive, dreamily-realised approach, lacing together a patchwork of wide-reaching influences. For example, in their description of the lead single ‘In2 Your Love’, its a sandblast of synths, heavy-hitting drums and lo-fi 80s soul, inspired by the demos of George Smallwood, whose music he’s become obsessed with since a friend recently introduced it to him, and whose sampled vocal served as the starting point for the track. Malvin’s hip-hop-indebted, energy-drenched style lights up his source material, paying homage to Smallwood’s freewheeling spirit, while turning it into something new.
“The result is a track that I feel pays homage to an under appreciated musical gem and surrounds it with a breath of new spirit,” Malvin says.
