k?d keeps it short and sweet with a cool two-and-a-half minute “Breeze”. The entire tune is a feel-good, bit-crushed adventure much like a hypothetical version of Sonic the Hedgehog in 2115. It is nostalgic, yet progressive and futuristic.
Starting with the main progression that underlies the entire song, Kid brings you up to the top of a mountainous build and dives you off the edge only to soar over a beautiful, breezy synth line with a stop-and-go rhythm conducted by a chest-punching kick and snare. Catch your breath then it’s back on up, only this time you’re diving off the other side; a bit more bass, but equally as beautiful.
k?d does it right with this one. Let’s hope he continues to grow.
