Skylimit is the Electro-Pop synth project by songwriter-producer Stephen Balcos. The exciting 23-year-old has been working on this brainchild of his since he started making music at the young age of 13. Now a much more developed and mature Balcos begins the next chapter of his musical journey with the infectious single – The Other Side.
In terms of instrumentation and production style, we see a familiarity to past work with the new track. However, there are more layers added when it comes to arrangement and lyricism, which shows the ambition of the project. Epic sounding drums akin to m83 during the chorus juxtaposed with soft piano sections show that The Other Side is not the kind of song that was just stumbled upon, but has been worked on for a while, and is well thought out.
Speaking on the track, Skylimit says:
“The Other Side” is about struggling with self-doubt and that it’s going to be okay, a light at the end of the tunnel, so to speak.
The Other Side is available to stream on your preferred service from the 4th of November and is accompanied by a music video, as well as artwork that was made by Stephen himself, showing his artistic skills go beyond music and that he is indeed an artist worth getting behind.
