After releasing 3 other tracks under the name Mt. Sierra, “Stop Yourself,” is the next step of this unique project. The single starts out slow and steady, yet builds up an intensity in no time flat. Female vocals begin to seep into the mix as the enchanting synth-work wins you over. One section of the track slowing bleeds into the other, as various notes and samples charmingly add to the allure of what you are now primed to. Just as the track slowly faded in, it’s fades out in an eased manner, coming to a close and leaving a nice feeling within.
Mt. Sierra, also known as Matthew Sierra, has come along way before this alias became a reality. Growing himself through different actions like attending the Icon Collective program, building up his style via various aliases, and always exploring new music that inspires him, all roads have been leading to Mt. Sierra.
He kicked off the project in 2020 and now has released 4 tracks altogether, clearly embracing this side of electronic which feels like a vibe of something out of the progressive/house/tech scene. Him taking in these influences and concocting something that takes these sounds to the next step.
However it exactly happened, Mt. Sierra is on to something on point and should be highlighted as such.
