Chrome Sparks drops new song ‘Moonraker’ and announces upcoming EP

Chrome Sparks has been keeping quiet a long time. The project of 22-year-old Jeremy Malvin, he’s chosen to release only tidbits of music every once in a while, his reverent fans clambering for any little shred of music the Brooklyn-based producer decides to impart. The Future Classic alumni has chosen to channel his talents into the remixing side of things, lending his uniquely percussive sound to the likes of Rubblebucket, Chela and The Glitch Mob, Panama and Porter Robinson.

Malvin’s last original song, Losing U, was released over a year ago. A sweeping soundscape of R&B-infused vocal explosions and slick production, the song was a telling sign of the enormous capability and talent of the bedroom producer; the kind of song you can really lose yourself to in a flood of warm endorphins, suddenly overpowering your senses.

Despite racking up a cool 500,000 plays on SoundCloud in the process, the Chrome Sparks production line went quiet and it had seemed that was the last original material we’d hear from the enigmatic producer for a while.

But rather than going good into the cold, dark night, all that was required to signal to his loyal fans that he was back was a simple cover photo change on Facebook. This was followed by another post with a SoundCloud link announcing Chrome Sparks’ new single Moonraker from his upcoming EP Parallelism.

An addictive collection of organic synthesisers and otherworldly production, Moonraker is impeccable. Slow and subtle in the build up, the apocalyptic synths expand outwards like a sonic supernova, stimulating your auditory neurotransmitters like the needles of an acupuncturist hitting each individual nerve. His music employs a kind of addictive euphoria, provoking an irresistible compulsion to keep coming back for more and more.

Just in time to close out 2015, Parallelism will be Malvin’s fourth EP, succeeding the very excellent Goddess. His last visit down under was for Splendour in the Grass 2014, where he and his three piece band played to a crowd of worn out – but devoted – revellers on the very last day of the festival.

A background as a classic percussionist, Malvin has managed to develop his talent in unique and unpredictable ways, producing the eponymous track Marijuana – the internet-stoner anthem that no doubt results in thick plumes of pungent smoke it’s played. 

Parallelism is out November 13 via Future Classic.
