Every once in a while a track comes along that makes you forget the whole concept of a write-up and just get lost in the music and your own imagination. Emmeffe’s Voyage is a fine example of such a release.
Leading with blissfully ambient layers of delicacy and subtle melody alike, riding alongside a distant, scattered and enjoyably unique, trip-hop-soaked beat, Voyage provides listeners with precisely the escapism and energy implied by its title.
Raining down with multiple layers of world music and electronic elements alike, the composition features hints of hang-drum-style vibes as much as it does the easy-listening, meditative soundscapes we turn to when the world gets a little too heavy or noisy.
Progressing from simple beginnings, meandering through uplifting auras and moments of genuine reflective depth, Voyage reignites a passion for the longer form audio experiences that seemed all but gone from much of the contemporary landscape. More than this, it does so with skill, thoughtfulness, and unwavering attention to detail.
Beautifully crafted, a journey well-worth embarking upon. Hopefully there’s more music to come.
