These compositions from artist Joel Jasper (who goes by the handle Apollo) showcases electronic themes whose vocals are simply part of each tune’s fabric. The lengthy opus “Sky Dive” is a composition that delivers a calming nimbus of synthesizers, r&b voices, a gently propulsive groove and a pervasive, playful keyboard hook. The composer shifts gears with “Arrival,” which we like a lot due to its sonic distortions and jarring dynamics. Most appealing is “FYE” where the artist’s playfulness is again prominent. Sampling Zedd’s “Stay the Night” and using a liberal dose of echo effects, Jasper deploys a call-and-response setup between male and female vocals that really entertains.
