This is the kind of track that stands out boldly from it’s peers in terms of how effectively the vast, creative input fuses with the professional and stylish output.
There’s a freshness to the sound, part of this is the undeniable experimentation featured throughout – at no point is the track predictable or a victim to complacency. And yet, at the same time as this, there’s a soothing feeling of repetitiveness; a hypnotic ambiance unfolds as you listen – just as you hope it would when seeking out new trip-hop or electronica to rhythmically mellow the day away.
The track has a great vibe, it’s addictive; the rhythm is consistent, so it keeps you captive, but the sounds are all very unexpected and unusual. The leading riff has a retro and fairly simplistic nature to it, yet the choice of notes add to the vibe, they add to the intensity, which somehow builds and builds despite the music seemingly remaining on the same plain throughout. It’s a clever bit of production, and it’s interesting at all times. It’s the sort of music that is difficult to place within a certain environment, but then without a doubt will fit quite brilliantly amidst whatever it is that you’re doing when you hit play. It’s fun, it’s atmospheric, and it’s easy to get into.
There’s a little bit of a journey within the instrumentation, and this is the sort of thing that allows listeners’ minds to wander as the music pours out. There’s a definite energy to the music that passes on to you as you witness it, and that’s a pretty powerful thing. That leading riff, the almost pan-flute-like sound leading the way, is unquestionably memorable. You only need to listen once to know you’ll recognise the track again at the drop of a hat, regardless of how much time has passed.
