On the first volume, Maiya Norton selected some standout tracks for the exclusive release of the Sonic Boom series. While many better known names peppered the first compilation, on Sonic Boom Vol. 2, Maiya shows us that her musical fluency goes deep and digs up some hidden gems.
This collection features artists like Suzi Analogue who offers a melodic, lulling instrumental aptly named “TheEndOfTheNite” and The Stuyvesants share another vintage soul epic called “Machine Love.” Other standouts for us are Bay Area electro-soul troupe The Seshen, rapper Eccentric, and Milwaukee producer Haz Solo.
The whole album plays out beautifully, never quite staying the same in style or tempo yet tying together into a tasteful journey of modern soul, electronic, hip-hop, and dance music.
