"Milk+EP" is based on the concept that music is nourishment, creating different spaces to "thrive" during those more relaxed periods of the day. This project marks ROSEWATER's aka BLKSUNCHILD's second instrumental project to date, released by his own independent label and multimedia conglomerate, "YXX". ROSEWATER explores a fresh palette of milky bass sounds, topped with buttery synths, reminiscent to early late 90s-early 2000s alternative grooves. There was no use of sampling on this EP, giving room for ROSE to really explore what direction the sound could move in. The atmosphere on tracks like "Afterhours" seem to be more of a living, breathing "thing", sitting right next to you while you continue to go from place to place in a session that we can only deem an "experience".
- Voice in your head that sounds like a fancier you.

Big thanks to my brother and mentor, Namir Blade, who produced Track 5 (Milk: Her Gift). I did some guitar licks, but that's it.
