“After months of selecting tracks & many hours of recording & mixing i finally finished my second Sonic Textures mix, Vol. 2
The mix is a deep, forward-thinking, emotive & though-provoking seventy minute audio collage built using a selection of dark, cinematic, ambient & soundscape textures to take the mind & soul on a conscious journey. Zone out, sit back, relax, enjoy…”
The next installment for the TUBA gang comes from Manchunian, Compa. Still fresh off his debut release with the formative Deep Medi imprint, Will returns stateside for the release of his next three beats (2 Vinyl + Digital, 1 Digital Exclusive), marking his second appearance with TUBA (his remix of Prism’s ‘Future Samba’ featured on 006). 007 is yet another testament to Compa’s intricate sound design and plunging sonic explorations. Each of the three tracks radiates with a dark and meditative vein, harboring feelings of somber splendor through means of ominous atmospheres and warm sub-work. Have a listen below and mark your calendars.
With its recent campaign of #bridgethegap and communications with the FatKidOnFire collective, it will be very interesting to see what label boss Ric has in store for TUBA in 2014 with regard to release schedule and other extraneous endeavors. Anywho, that’s it for today – I’ll catch you soon.
The day I got this release in my inbox was one of pure joy. Following the powerfully weighty single from The Illuminated & TMSV, New Moon and Hatti Vatti put forth something in a vein completely opposite. The release plunges into moments of melancholy, as seen in ‘Ae’ with Synkro, and uplifts back into a flash of warmth as Cian Finn softly reminds us it’s a wonderful world. Then, transported to a distant realm of ambient tones and dreamy progressions with works like ‘Synthesis’, the journey continues. The brilliant, and often subtle placement of vocal clips throughout this album provide an avenue for each listener to interpret and apply meaning relevant to their experience, opening a dimension beyond the standard subjectivity in purely instrumental music. This is a true album, in the sense that it should be enjoyed from beginning to end as it tells a story and curates an intrinsic experience. It’s a truly beautiful piece of work that I would recommend to everyone. Check out below for a couple of previews, hopefully they will release more for you guys before the album drops!
