Electronic music doesn’t get much more immersive and interesting than this – particularly when crafted to such a unique degree, with the perfectly consistent presence of professionalism and a clear passion for audio escapism.
For a producer of any age this is an easy to escape within collection. For one as young as twelve, I’m excited to hear what the future will bring from Acidic Base.
A fine short collection – unique in its creative freedom yet rhythmically soothing enough to simply let play; evidently on repeat. There are certain traits within each piece that offer a clear level of individuality.
Alien Skin’s fine balance between entrancing rhythms & fragments of provocative ideas is fascinating & gives the listener a strange sense of privilege; as if this exclusive experience has only been had by the lucky few.
Trouble in London is something of a creative audio masterpiece. Precisely the kind of composition that pushes the limits in a pure & naturally emotive way.
This album is made up of an immeasurable number of details & experimental layers of audio. Barendo strikes as both an artist & musician, able to take any sound or collection of sounds & craft something unusual with them. At the same time, there’s a lot of heart & self-reflection in the writing – the chaos of the music doesn’t replace the desire to connect.
If you’re looking to feel uplifted, loaded with a sense of confidence and calm united, of possibility, this short but sincere and seductive EP Existence has what it takes to get you there.
This Nostalgia Lost Remix of Say A Prayer brings a quickly enjoyable, vintage dance vibe to the stage, adding multiple layers of energy and colour to the song in an unexpectedly effective way.
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.
Partly organic, partly fresh from the depths of electronic mayhem. There’s drama & tension, presented in a powerful way. It’s a journey well worth experiencing at volume, and a concept we all need to consider a little more attentively.
The piece starts off with beauty & softness, which soon descends into a heavy pit of movement – an industrial throbbing – then these tribal flickers of noise & consistent energy fill up the outer layers. You can visualize this conveyor belt of processes – the systems being the thing that’s valued, not the people who operate them.
There is no such simplicity as a verse-chorus-verse-chorus set-up on this album. Expect stories, expanding scenes of emotional & artistic turmoil, and absolute, unwavering creativity.
