The new wave of garage has brought in few artists who have really pushed the boundaries of the genre; Blackboxx stands confidently among that selection as demonstrated with "New Ghost," his first release with Ultra Bass. Opening with downtempo dubstep filled with atmospheric guitars and pianos, "Closer" starts you off as a teaser for the rest of the release, filled with organic sound design and warm synths. The title track "New Ghost" goes down a darker path, in an emotional display of contemporary garage filled with superb vocal manipulation and weeping string synths. "Midnight Swims" closes out the release, once again returning to more uplifting instrumentation infused with and ethereal mix of warm keys and strings alongside high-pitched vocal edits all glued together with a breaks influenced 2-step beat.
