TRIVECTA, Everyday (EP)
After successful collaborations and tours with the likes of Seven Lions, Wooli and Excision, as well as well-received remixes for Illenium and Dabin which have garnered millions of streams, Tampa’s Trivecta (aka Sam Dobkin) helps refine and reshape dubstep and melodic bass in his new four song EP Everyday.
There are elements of both sub-genres present, but not as heavy on record as in concert, where I’m sure the songs will be amped up to please fans and showcase Trivecta’s fluid guitar work. Aside from the instrumental opener “The Feeling Of It All”, any of the songs in Everyday are well suited for big festival sets. “Leave It All Behind” (featuring vocal by co-writer Fagin) may not strike you immediately until its chorus, but draws you into its message deeper with each listen. “Wasteland” keeps you hanging on the edge with European-sounding intensity before its big emotional drop three quarters through. And the title song, quieter and more melodic than the rest thanks to vocal and songwriting assists by Rico & Miella, could find favour with fans of The Chainsmokers or Martin Garrix.
Everyday is a solid EP that will not only broaden Trivecta’s musical landscape, but will also bring newcomers further into the dubstep and melodic bass fold.
