SR Track of the Day: Ticking and Tocking – Electric Mantis
Armed with an eclectic collection of sounds and an aptitude for innovative compositions, Electric Mantis brings you “Ticking and Tocking.” This 21-year-old Portland producer released the futuristic, melodic trap track “Flips and Flops, Drops and Drops” a few months ago, which blew up on Reddit and was featured on future-beats producer Djembe Djembe’s soundcloud.
A broad spectrum of electronic sub-genres surface in Electric Mantis’ high-quality production, and he is quickly developing a very unique and identifiable style that some older producers would envy. “Ticking and Tocking” is a little more chilled out than “Flips and Flops,” but it showcases an exciting new side of versatility, competency, and refreshing creativity. There is some very well-produced glitchy bliss embedded in this new track, and the mix of reverberating synths and future trap breaks gives it a rare kind of sophistication.
