Russian multi-instrumentalist, Biicla, is known for his groundbreaking production, singing and songwriting. His hometown, shy of 30,000 people – picked up house elements throughout his music which led him to the US. Biicla’s sound is immersed across the electronic spectrum. There’s a lot of promise from this talented artist and there’s definitely more to experience.
The wave of electronic music is incredibly vast today. There’s literally a sound for everyone and Biicla does a great job catering to the subgenres of EDM while maintaining his unique brand. Looking back at past projects like his track “Deeper” and his debut full length EP “No Place” – it’s clear he went into his career with a strong vision.
“I Feel” has been on top of my most listened to since its release. The production is seamless and takes you on a trip in which the journey is designed by the listener. The intro is soft with a definite sign of house elements before picking up a stemmy melody infused by doses of tasteful synths. Biicla doesn’t waste much time before dropping the track title in the song upon the synth’s debut. The snaps are halted by a grainy riser and mellow vocals that will have you questioning if you could match the same talkative style that these vocals embody. The drop – though not a dirty bass banger – rides the hats of every note that make up the masterpiece. Biicla does a great job using low kicks to break up the unique drops and risers this song has to offer. Since “I Feel” is lyrically pretty simple – it’s easy to focus on the production that Biicla is famously known for. The overall sound reminds me of a circuit. Each tone rides into the next like a wave of messages. If I had to compare this track further – I’d easily present it as an auditory model of our brains, kind of like a dashboard made up of sounds. Whatever the literal meaning may be to you, don’t overthink it. One look at the moody cover art will be enough to send you into a state of euphoria.
