Starting with the simple, organic streams and soft rhythms of an electronic soundtrack, the track emerges in a way that feels calm and insane at the same time, floating around in your personal stillness but taking you at high speeds. The connection between sound and concept is incredibly powerful – the journey, the beauty of those riffs and melodies – it all seems right at home with the electronic rhythm and environment that drive the speed of the track. It is a brilliant composition that nurtures the title and the creative imagination of the producer in a most effective way, allowing for a few minutes of fun, uplifting listening.
The journey through this release shows an incredible level of detail mixing, in particular, detail and sound exploration. The essence of sound is always there, the rhythm, the speed, the synthesized note wave. In addition, the release presents a structure that throws out more than a few parts of an alternative reality, occasionally creating something that simply feels more like a multi-sensory experience than audio. There is a touch of spoken word, there are several instances of industrial breakdown with smoothness, and there are definite instances of noises and emotions that provoke intense thought. Even if you are completely submissive to the overall environment, paying attention to the details will give you the full result.
