Fresh off stints producing for the likes of Sabrina Claudio, Nicki Minaj, and Drake, GOVI’s debut album blends chopped up vocal samples, euphoric synths, and infectious breakbeats.
The Ajax, Ontario-based producer draws from his obsession with science fiction in crafting a sequence that plays like a charged up love affair between man and machine. Daft Punk, DJ Shadow, and Oneohtrix Point Never are references too obvious to define what GOVI’s forward-oriented electronics encapsulate over the 45-minute runtime. Do they rave in the TRON universe? If so, we are quite certain GOVI is the headliner every night.

The Italian Eurovision champs’ first majority-English album is full of roaring solos, raspy vocals, and delightful sleaze.
