POLR, digitally portrayed as a giant polar bear with an MPC and a polaroid camera, aims to combine meaning with grooving rhythm and bass. This young producer, real name Micah Von, got his start doing a remix for indie pop artist Vian Izak. The remix was noticed by Spotify Germany who put it on their chill bass playlist. The remix received over 390k streams and Micah found himself with a growing following.
Now a year later POLR launches as a lo-fi hip-hop project focusing on rhythm and meaning. The second four song EP, titled “Break of Dawn”, samples piano sounds from label-mate St. Dawn in Slumber. The emotional piano samples, layered with old school drums, deep sub bass and the sound of birds chirping, are the soundtrack of an early morning.
