Toada Changes Direction with “Contemplative and Immersive Slow-Paced” EP

Written by on November 8, 2023

Toada, the Portuguese producer born Valdir da Silva, will release a “contemplative and immersive slow-paced” EP.

Slow​-​Paced Tangents comprises six lush and organic tracks and showcases Toada’s “musical prowess” through heartwarming synth sounds and simultaneously groovy transient drums.

While the release incorporates contemporary music production aesthetics, its genesis is rooted in the sonic landscapes of the late ’90s and early to mid ’00s. Drawing inspiration from the slower tempos of downtempo, electronica, hip-hop, and dubstep beats of that era, Toada has crafted an EP that “pays homage to these timeless influences while infusing a modern sonic identity.”

The release will land on Toada’s own Plūma label.

Toada was born in Angola but raised in Lisbon. For more information on his background, check out his XLR8R podcast here.
