Never has an album name been more on point, in hindsight. This is an easy must for music fans and those who like to enjoy the good vibes, good rhythms, and not take life too seriously.
29 year old producer Thousand Times, a long standing favourite of ours, has linked up with GPME – a powerhouse talent agency that supports a wide range of pro athletes, musicians, and entertainers.
As Walt Disney said ‘If you can dream it, you can do it’. There is no 100% sure way to success. Everyone must find his own way. The most important thing is to find your own sound & build your network.
Ignatov underlines a varied, perhaps limitless & creative side to his work more & more so as this album progresses. He keeps his audience on their toes throughout. The ultimate, musically immaculate offering of escapism.
Jazz & funk touched, ambient escapism at its most immersive & fascinating. Tiny fragments of audio collide, combine & intertwine to create something vast & alternative, almost like a freestyle jam – the vocals included.
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.
Pakø is laying a strong and lasting foundation for himself as a producer, staying true to his own creative desires but also paying close attention to what works and what has an impact in the music world.
A breath of fresh air, the details & the sheer satisfaction of that stop 7 subsequent re-start; there’s a fire about it all that you just don’t come across in such an alternative, heavy manner these days.
Cap’n Richie’s expression is loaded with unpredictability & simultaneous levels of identity. You recognise his work, you recognise Carmen’s uniquely stylish voice, and you just know you’re in for something with a little more vibrancy & freedom than the average dance offering of today.
BABYLON-X offers an undeniable connection to the art of musical composition & creative expression. To take something that inspired him, and re-mould it in a personal, new, effective way, showcases a fine set of skills. Well worth listening to at volume.
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.
When the beat drops in, your heart picks up the pace, the music starts to rain down around you, and the complex nature of the track evolves to become this very simple, pure journey through thought & possibility.
