You can love this as a fan of house & EDM in general – unlike the more common pop-EDM fusions that rob the listener of their initial attachment to either of those genres. DBT has a clear connection to the music & an understanding of what works, so this finely tuned, beautifully crafted release stands out in a subtle, not screaming for attention manner.
“I wanna let all the weird creative kids like me know that it’s cool to be weird and creative. And that art should be selfish, and if you only make art for money, then you’re a whore.”
Featuring a Fatboy Slim style of musical craft-work. The vibes are superb, each moment makes sense once it’s there, but never does any of this appear as the logical or usual next move – a quality you quickly come to love about Vox Eagle.
Things vary throughout, keeping you interested & creating something genuinely artistic & dramatic before you. It’s an interesting album in a number of ways, but it’s also quite easy to simply let play – a well suited project for those late nights that seem to never end.
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.
You can hear the musicianship, which is rare in modern electronic music, and at the same time – you can hear the professionalism in the mix & the final polish. The build-up is superb but even when the soundscape gets thick & full – you can still pick out those key characteristics.
The sound is crisp & colorful, and although there are many layers to the soundscape, the original emotion & authenticity of the idea & the human voice have been highlighted at every step. The electronic ambiance takes nothing away from the organic realness & positivity, so you get the best of both worlds.
State Royale are walking their own creative pathway, taking hints of influence from various places but essentially sticking to their guns and the intended message and vibe they wish to portray.
The whole EP has a stunning smoothness to it & in fact, to listen in full is to get the feeling that this is all part of a single thought or feeling. There’s only six minutes to make your way through, but when it ends, you feel the loudness of that silent void quite intensely.
“Every aspect of my life is somehow connected to my art or is art in itself; the way I maneuver through a capitalist society, the way I deal with obstacles, problems, losses & successes.”
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.
The piercing hit of each synth & riff works incredibly well in sending those uplifting shivers that energize & inspire. The whole thing rains down around you in the way that authentic, effective dance music should.
