Pop-tronic Producer UNBLOOM Returns With Synth Banger "Lost Myself"
When UNBLOOM first started dropping electrifying dance bangers, nobody knew who was behind the beats. Opting for anonymity in an effort to gain unbiased feedback, it took a while before UNBLOOM unveiled the truth. A few years since wearing his production moniker proudly and publicly, Ontario-based pop-tronic producer Jonathan Zarola continues to drop on-fire singles like breadcrumbs, leading listeners to wherever he’s heading. We’ll go anywhere.
His latest single, “Lost Myself,” was released just yesterday and it’s chockful of his signature synth treatment — vibrant and buzzing. “Lost Myself” opens with organic percussion (the perfectly placed claps and slaps) and smooth-as-butter vocals singing reflective lines like “I just feel like I lost a part of myself and a part of you.” The breakdown hits, not so much your typical in-your-face explosion of rhythm, but instead a tender burst of fizzy synthesizers, distant percussive booms, and warbling bass lines sharing the sonic space. For three and a half minutes, the song pulses along — no lulls, no pauses, just an endless onslaught of neon beats awash in an expert production paying considerate mind to spacing, loops, and reverb. There’s so much color to the track, woozy with the drone of synth sparkle and pumping with a life UNBLOOM has built, swaddled in a zippy soundscape you’ll get lost in.
