To choose just one song from this collection would be like using only one colour from the pallette to create your latest painting. The playlist in full is where the real experience comes from – an absolute pleasure to stumble upon and well worth journeying into.
Jcarbonell collaborates with ANNA for this release, a song that skillfully balances soulful melodic expression with dreamlike trip hop and an underlying sense of depth and awakening.
A superb bass-line and some thoughtfully chosen synths and samples help make this an easy hit. Lightly soulful, breathy vocals offer the finishing touches and the driving factor behind the song’s ideas and that subtle ear-worm of a melody.
The original idea was one that could be interpreted in a number of ways, and this EP of remixes is a blissful testament to that.
Consequences is a smooth yet dark RnB track with an indie edge and some superb production. Grassett and LUURK alike bring an expressive and professional approach to the project, and the music is all the more immersive as a result.
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.
Cerulean is a two-track collection, a short journey through peacefulness with a resounding sense of depth and consideration about it. The title piece is as quiet as it is overwhelming – to listen at volume is to let these layers and details really wash over you in a subtly powerful manner.
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.
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.
A fascinating album – enjoyable at all times yet also unique and unusual enough to really hold your interest. Superb production skills fuse with unlimited creativity and help cement Drearia as an impressively artistic and enchanting artist.
Conceptually on point, dealing with the value of time and its ability to change our perspectives and our understanding of those around us – the song utilises characteristics from a number of musical genres to build a lightly rhythmic yet dreamlike soundscape around you.
The dramatic, neo-classical design of this hard-hitting dance track makes for something totally energizing and simultaneously refreshing at this time in our lives.
