The Other Side – Call Me When You Need Me
As well as having the best artist name I’ve heard in a long time, Russian-based The Other Side is responsible for an addictive set of tunes that combine the metronomic hats and bass of modern-day hip hop with atmospheric pads that are pure electronica.
Call Me When You Need Me is moody, subtle and nostalgic for something, although I have no idea what. It’s the uplifting melody, pulsing through every section of the song, that keeps drawing me back. The faint background vocals add real atmosphere and the ‘sprinkles’ provide a certain je ne sais quoi (literally, I don’t know what instrument that is, somebody tell me, it’s on the tip of my brain!).
The Other Side is Nikita Bochkov from Yaroslavl. He has many more examples of his hypnotic take on bass and beats on his Soundcloud page. Go check him out!
