An ethereal & enigmatic work of mastery. There’s a point between musical creation & finding a backdoor hack into the human psyche that Miyuki has somehow mastered.
In 2018 alone, producer N I K Ø T E N E has made waves with his EDM releases and has no plans of stopping. His latest release Dirty Machine is an unmissable addition to the catalogue.
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.
At it’s core, this is down-tempo EDM – suited to those later than late nights when you’re not sure what kind of music you need but you absolutely can’t stand the thought of silence.
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.
