Active Surplus: “Meera”

May 26th, 2020

Active Surplus, one of Toronto’s most promising young duos, lands on Pacific Rhythm with their debut self-titled EP, a love letter to the house music sound that first sprouted from the West Coast. On the four-track EP, the duo of Evan Vincent, aka Emissive and Ian Syrett, delivers a perfectly crafted collection full of silky, smooth house grooves. The EP was heavily inspired by the stuttering drum patterns of Baltimore club, which undergird each track in subtle but noticeable ways, making the grooves that much skippier and slippier. One of our favorite cuts is the EPs closer “Meera”, a heartfelt tribute to a loved one. Blast it above.

The “Active Surplus” EP is out now via Pacific Rhythm. Get it here.
