Shimmery synths quickly evolve into an energetic, driving four-on-the-floor beat and somber, but uplifting analog synth strings reminiscent of 90s Berlin techno. Two concurrent basslines introduce a touch of acid to a track that is perfect for a late-night drive along a dark stretch of highway.
Magenta album in depth
Released only two days ago by the artist himself, Magenta fuses different music genres into an incredible 10-track collection meant to be listened as a continues mix. Kicking off with Dark Soleil, the album starts with cinematic and environmental sound; a child choir is singing in the distance while a dark and sever theme takes the space. Acid and electronic vibes wrap around the dark baseline in Storm Grains that introduces the first minimal and clean beats. A hypnotic arpeggio drives the listener to Decades, a dreamy and angelic tune that mixes melodic-techno vibes with ethereal elements. The Western Front completely turns the album upside down with its acid and hard beats and synths, opening the door for the harder part of Magenta.
Odd Numbers marks the 6th record and moves a bit from the track we’ve heard before. Its experimental melodies and glitched beat create a bridge with Tides that continues this experimental electronic path the album is following. Pairing these beats, a cinematic and long melodic line the track brings you into an unknown territory with Indigenous Planets. The downtempo beat paired with an acid top melody creates that mysterious feeling built around Blue Dream. Last but not least Meissa closes the album.
