The next artist in our Magnetic Mix series is Zvrra. The Chicago-based artist is prepping the release her latest LP Array of Light this Friday. The follow up to her December 2020 LP Flow State, Array of Light expands on the themes from her previous record. Not only does it add another song, but it also builds with intricately crafted songs and patterns of sounds that draw you in to their hypnotic grip.
She started making music at 18 after being influenced by dance anthems in cartoons and video games like Midnight Club II. She started to hone in on her sound that glides between icy ambient, swirling techno and some Chicago sounds like juke.
She carries those same sounds into this mix that sets the tone with the first two songs and then slowly evolves from there.
Magnetic Mix 169: Zvrra
My Toolbox: Precursor [Arvet]
How It Was Made: Danny Goliger – Sustain EP [Dirtybird White Label]
"This is probably my favorite mix to date due to the creativeness within the first two tracks and then how it evolves! I've been waiting for the perfect chance to play these too,” explains Zvrra. “This one showcases what's been in my ear throughout these past years. I threw down and I hope you can experience this mix here as I have cheers."
