Stephen Dusenberry takes listeners through a multilayered, retro-funk arena of optimism on this release Fools Gold. The track offers the fullness of a live jazz and funk band, along with a notably electronic aura that fuses with that raw musicality in an energizing way.
What Gianluca Piacenza does so well is fulfill wonderfully the role of the artist. He utilizes simplicity to express complex emotions and experiences. He relies upon only the connection between the thought, the feeling, and the hands that create the music.
This entire experience is the sort that can aid the listener with deep meditation or calm – a lyric-free environment, layered with subtle intricacies and effects that take you out into the world and simultaneously further within yourself as they fill the space around you.
What begins as a somewhat minimalist soundscape, soon evolves to become a notably cinematic, emotional journey – the sort with the potential to accompany a major scene in a movie.
These tracks create rhythmic soundscapes loaded with elements of both tribal and electronic instrumentation alike – as well as fragments of voices that help guide you through and build a notably cinematic experience.
It would be a crying shame for the world not to hear this project, eclectic and endlessly skillful – a total joy to escape within and the perfect accompaniment to almost any kind of day.
Magle showcases many different sides to his personality and his creative drive throughout the project, there’s no single word to explain the way the music works, or why -it just does, and defiantly so. A breath of fresh air and a pleasure to listen through.
Where the experimental aspect has given the piece character and allowed it to stand out, those essential musical building blocks within present a clear knowledge of what works in composition, so there just as many addictive and satisfying riffs and flickers of colour as there are instances of the unexpected.
What’s clever about the creative production is that you don’t see the onslaught approaching – there’s no pause and subsequent heavy drop like there would be in a traditional EDM piece. Somehow, somewhere along the way, Heidscrape capture and contain you within this whirlwind of audio escapism.
Shawn Phillips’ latest album offers a series of compelling stories and profound ideas by means of a musically masterful array of soundscapes. Phillips’ presents some brilliant melodies and an overall warm and full aura as this playlist pours through.
“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?”
Phillip Carrington gets freely creative on this EP Alpha. There’s no single instrument that is the heart of this project, just a thoroughly artistic connection to music itself.
