Award is the stuff that fills dance floors and appeals to the broadest definition of EDM. The EP has less to do with colossal, mind-numbing bass drops and more to do with drawing from a pool of genres spread out across pop's spectrum. On the title track Salas uses a solemn piano note as a guiding light—it rings constantly throughout the song's shape-shifting landscape of shivering video game synths, cool finger snaps, and what sounds like a sample of glass shattering.
Salas swings back through Chicago tomorrow night for an Award release party at Primary Nightclub; Them Flavors DJs open.
