Poldoore - Sweet Memories (Cold Busted)

Cold Busted returns to familiar label artist Poldoore, born Tom Schillebeeckx, to release his new single “Sweet Memories,” featuring distinguished emcee Awon and DMC 2012 Team World Champion turntablist DJ Damented (of The Mixfitz). Based out of Belgium, Poldoore started producing at an early age and eventually his potential was realized by Cold Busted’s offer to release the debut L.A.X. EP. The pairing only grew stronger from there through many projects and compilation appearances that garnered much praise. Poldoore’s sound is about good vibes, creating warm atmospheres that blend funk, soul, lounge, and reggae with punchy drum breaks. Those are the building blocks for “Sweet Memories,” an effective standalone instrumental with lazy horns floating atop airy guitars and fluttering keys combining to create a laid-back atmosphere while fat bass and snappy drums work the neck out. The reminiscing rhymes of Awon, a figure in the new emerging ‘jazz hop’ scene, flow rhythmically while DJ Damented’s scratch skills add a next level vocal chop to the beat. Deciding to include this one in the crate should be easy, much like the cut’s vibe.
