New collab of dreamy electro and crunchy IDM from Dutch producers Betonkust & Palmbomen II, recorded over one rainy weekend at a holiday park called 'Center Parcs De Eemhof' in The Netherlands. Theirs was the only occupied Bungalow, and the subtropical swimming paradise was completely abandoned—the perfect zone and conceptual backdrop to this six-track EP.
Most moments of “Center Parcs” push through cheeseball and plastic sounds in search of realness—opener “Leo Mirjam” could be lifted from the park’s actual TV commercial, whereas the faded leisure of the rest of the EP takes on more languid and sparkling such as ambient blisser “Aqua Mundo” and the ultra-emotive and slow-mo “24x33”.

A beautiful, fuchsia neon-lit city filled with the lost escaping souls of urban dwellers, still aimlessly wandering the futuristic metropolis for a place to call "home", Birth of a New Day is perhaps the single most defining vaporwave album ever created. It's a record that, even after every passing year, does not ever cease to amaze me for what telepath and HKE managed to create through this internet masterpiece of a record. Quota
