Halifax’s Bishu has been rising in the ranks, thanks to timeless releases with Luca Lush, QUIX, Mad Decent and more. Now, the 22-year-old takes to the notable Monstercat imprint for his debut Hali 2 Cali EP.
Quite a departure from his festival-ready SoundCloud bootlegs, the six-track collection feels album-like; there is a very clear direction throughout the EP and it feels extremely meticulous and well thought out. From the pop-inspired “Control” with Anjulie to the hip-hop and trap-influenced “Blind Spots” and all of the unique sounds in between, Bishu’s Hali 2 Cali is quite a ride.
