Soul City emerges with the easy-going rhythms and subtle organic-electronic ambiance of a Lemon Jelly classic. You can hear every instrumental layer as this crisp and clean building block, and yet at the same time – you can let the entire completed soundscape work its smooth and colourful softness around you in a united wave of warmth.
“This music came to me in a kind of lucid dream, in a kind of vision, a very special kind of trance so to speak. Maybe this music came to me from another world, who knows?”
Always one to throw in more than a few subtle curve balls, Forest Robots proves there is no limit to his creative reach – no hill too high to climb, no sound too unusual to approach & master with professionalism & care.
Not until you’ve let the music rain down on you in full – which it does, the sound of rain is consistent – not until then does it really release you from the fast pace of modern life and let you realise the stillness of being.
The places these compositions take you are impossible to describe. The answer is to simply turn up the volume and let yourself fall into the moment. The journey within is likely to be completely unique for each individual listener.
Pall Simon has woven multiple layers of synths & sounds, fusing the natural world with something a little more dreamlike or electronic. There are plenty of audiences out there who thrive under the blanket of this kind of thoughtfully crafted EDM.
The EP slowly but surely washes over you in a manner that – if you let it – completely soothes the soul. It paints over your worries & guides you through limitless space; filled with ideas & possibilities.
Beautiful chaos.. the band succeed entirely in winning you over. For a mere two-track EP, Hectic is an intense & unforgettable playlist of pure musical power. saajtak is a name worth looking out for.
An album of complex, hybrid sounds that somehow come together & work in harmony to create what is easily Cohen’s best work yet.
Whenever we seek out the soundtrack to a quick drive or to wake us up in the morning, this is the sort of smooth yet clever ambiance we turn to. There’s nothing overly personal that detaches the track from the listener – on the contrary, it feels like it’s been made for you; exactly the way we like to feel when we turn to music.
The complexity of the soundscapes is mesmerising, and yet the smoothness or unity of everything interconnected within is stunning. There’s excitement and calm at work simultaneously.
Ignatov underlines a varied, perhaps limitless & creative side to his work more & more so as this album progresses. He keeps his audience on their toes throughout. The ultimate, musically immaculate offering of escapism.
