Baltra Announces New EP 'Ambition'

It's out on May 27th through Local Action...Electronic producer Baltra will release new album 'Ambition' through Local Action on May 27th. The producer first came to the fore in the mid 2010s, part of a coterie of left-field artists often tagged as lo-fi house. Since then his work has broadened and evolved, with debut album 'Ted' arriving in 2019. New EP 'Ambition' finds Baltra hooking up with Local Action, and it will be given a full-sleeve vinyl and digital release next month. Lead cut 'Baby' fuses those house elements with a dose of artful electronic pop, a finely contoured construction that leans in towards escapism. Crafted during the height of the pandemic, 'Baby' became a window into another, more optimistic realm. He comments... “I wrote 'Baby' during the height of Covid-19 at a time when I just needed a respite from everything that was going on around me, and this was my escape route. The lyrics can be interpreted in different ways, but In essence it's a love letter to one's self — an inner-dialogue questioning whether the material items we buy as a form of escapism or self-expression is what gives us our value or if there is something deeper, something more intrinsic.” Tune in now.
