Hot on the heels of his 2018 debut album, prolific producer Chrome Sparks has blessed his listeners with another five tracks of music. Be On Fire is a journey through sound, fueled by lo-fi samples, dreamy synth wave chords, stuttering organic drums, and his characteristically nostalgic, yet energetic style.
The short form project shines with tracks like the soulful “In2 Your Love” and the soaring “Ultraviolet Rainbow.” But the truly sparkling standout on the EP is the titular track, “Be On Fire.” The jazzy, upbeat single clocks in at just over two minutes, but the energetic tone leaves a lasting impression. As disco-influenced styles reemerge into the spotlight, many talented dance music producers have made forays into the world of future funk. Chrome Sparks is certainly one at the helms of the movement, as he proves time and again.
All in all, Be On Fire rings consistent with what fans have come to expect from Chrome Sparks: consistent synthesizer work, a clever and elegantly sparse use of vocal samples, and moderately experimental vibes that lend themselves to a throwback retro feel.
In support of his newest project, Chrome Sparks will be embarking on a six-week North American tour from January 16 through February 28, hitting every major city in Canada and the US. View the full tour schedule and buy tickets on his website.
