Easily one of the most uniquely interesting, blissfully hypnotic experimental tracks to emerge in quite some time.
A simple genre label cannot truly convey the experience. Sure, there’s a techno style beat, an industrial layer of movement and energy, but with that come a series of moments thoughtfully crafted and designed so as to intrigue and toy with the very space around you.
From SiMo’s consciousness to yours – Once Upon A Time is three and a half minutes of pure audio escapism.
Building up slowly, feeling like the inside of a water droplet, close-by to a heavy-set speaker system – gradually gathering momentum and energy, absorbing the rhythm; the pulse of surrounding sound-play. SiMo showcases a brilliantly professionally, clearly knowledgeable way with music production.
The details make this what it is – a quickly recognisable, powerful and fairly incomparable piece of music. The completed piece though is something of its own entirely. A composition you can trust in, to be experienced perhaps alone initially, through sound-cancelling headphones; later to be shared and experienced with others. There’s light and darkness working in unison here, and it sounds beautiful – like organised chaos; the point between waking life and deep sleep.
Really nicely done, I look forward to delving into more of SiMo’s music.
