Canadian producer Dylan Khotin-Foote has kept his Khotin alias going for the
better part of a decade; the impressionistic electronic project shifts with the
movements in his life. Sometimes it leads, like when the club-friendly grooves of
2014's Hello World immersed him in the heart of Vancouver's underground dance
scene, and sometimes it follows, like 2018's Beautiful You, a downtempo salve for DJ
fatigue. His melodic sensibility and playful ear for atmosphere remain the rippling
core of the project's fingerprint; whether beat-driven or ambient, a foggy smear or
a dusted and pristine print, a Khotin track has a distinct and instantly recognizable
swirl. During and after the 2020 release of Finds You Well, his second LP on Ghostly
International, Khotin-Foote settled back into a slower vibe in his hometown of Edmonton. Even before the pandemic, his pivots to softer production, and away from
DJing, left him with fewer opportunities in Vancouver and club bookings overall,
and as a self-identifying introvert, he was fine with that. But the change of pace did
open space for Khotin-Foote to grapple with concepts of adulthood and career. At
his lowest, he almost walked off this musical path altogether; instead, he doubled
down on the craft - the tone, pacing, and dynamism of new material - arriving at a
definitive full-length. With Release Spirit, Khotin releases himself from the pressure
of expectation, fusing and refining everything we know about his music. The warmth
and familiarity of Khotin's dreamy, dulcet style meet new ideas and frameworks, a
natural progression, a modest revelation; Khotin confirms it is okay to move slowly
and he's never sounded better doing it.
