Clocking in at over thirty five minutes, this EP (more of a mini album really) features a generally pacey selection of tracks, most of which are very rhythmic and danceable. Lush, liquid synthetic soundscaping where fluid arpeggios and motifs are layered upon strong beats and lilting basslines. The synthesizer voices are rich and crystal clear, constantly altering with plenty of depth to the sound - these are accompanied by restful vibes, effected voices and various manipulated world elements.
The wide array of electronica has quite an improvised feel to it, loose lead lines and melodies held in place by a strong rhythym section. This compelling release will appeal to fans of chilled electronica that live a downtempo dance beat to their music. The energetic luxuriance of all the tracks here will suit Banco de Gaia fans as well as anyone into the likes of Androcell and Mystical Sun.
