35912 Polaris - Desert Run

Humm…quite a comeback from Polaris! Near, or more, four years after
Way Out, Jakub Kmiec gets out of his den to offer an album which will
surprise more than one. An electronic ode on the theme of desert,
“Desert Run” entails in its trail this signature of Polaris' EDM in
structures clearly more elaborate than on his previous albums. The
result gives a rather particular style where we find essences of
Jarre, for the cosmic decor, Kitaro for the harmonization of the
synthesized melodies, Tangerine Dream for the effects and the spirals
of sequences and finally Redshift for many other elements.
It's moreover in the perfumes of Logos that "Fata Morgana" gets
organized around our ears. A dark veil imagined in the cave of
Redshift spreads layers of chthonian voices around this meshing of
percussions and sequences which dribble its keys in a rhythmic which
goes towards this electronic rock that we still don't know how to
dance. Evolving in two ph ases, "Fata Morgana" corresponds perfectly
to the meaning of its idea with a sound mirage where the diverse
periods of Tangerine Dream form an ear-catchy symbiosis. Like this
guitar which spits its riffs, which would like to turn into furious
solos, and this phase of sequences which goes as these crazy balls in
an abacus activated by a gearing out of control. It's in this moment,
around 6:30 minutes, that the sequencer activates its madness,
modifying a structure which becomes more uncluttered and more lively.
The fans of Chris Franke's ingenious sequencing patterns are going to
devour this title. "Derweze" is in pure Redshift mode, both for the
ambiences and for the use of the sequencer which presents its
Tangerine Dream influences. Let's that it describes perfectly this
legend of the Gates of Hell on Earth situated in the Turkmenistan
desert. "Dunes" will be party of these titles put in my iPod, section
Best EM tracks of 2018. Rolling in Floydian mists, some rather intense
synth s olos get out of layers filled with reverberating cracklings. A
small footstep of the sequencer and hop …A sublime synth line, more
than too harmonious, goes down from the clouds with an irrevocable
influence on our charms. The sequencer stammers another approach at
the same time as a good bass line invites itself behind this
harmonious gift. And everything goes fast! The percussions which come
to dance with the keyboard riffs and propel the music towards a lively
structure where threads of melodies roll in loops on a structure a bit
jerky, but always very animated. Divided between its magnificent
whistled melody and its Kitaro solos style, "Dunes" retreats towards a
narrow corridor of ambiospherical elements before springing with
strength, rambling its 2nd part between its phases of ambivalences. I
have to tell you that it's this kind of music that leads me to madly
love EM and its multiple possibilities.
Chords quivering like clackers prisoners in a foggy echo tickle
charmingly our sense of hearing. This zigzagging movement coming from
the far drags a meshing of pulsations and acoustic percussions which
will be the base of a bidirectional rhythmic structure. Some arpeggios
flutter above, while the presence of mist amplifies the atmospheric
side of "Hasting's Cutoff", a title which gets the most closer of the
hymns EDM that we found on the album Way Out, but in an envelope a
little bit Cosmic Funk, a la Robert Schroëder. "Oasis" is sculpted in
the same mold. This time, the rhythm escapes from an orchestral fog
from where arises a line of bass pulsation and an armada of sequences
which flicker quickly, like in those big electronic rocks of TD in
their Miramar years. The 2nd part proposes another rendezvous with the
dexterity of Jakub Kmiec and his synth solos which will seduce you
more than once throughout this album filled of surprises. And there, I
didn't even mention the very Franke pattern of sequences of the Logos
years which are flickering with a goo d pace in this finale, as well
as in a lot of places in “Desert Run”.
This comeback of Polaris is a good breath of fresh air in the spheres
of EM with an approach highly stylized and surprisingly eclectic.
Surfing comfortable between several styles and influences, of which
the links are imperceptible and nevertheless tangible, “Desert Run” is
a journey in the heart of a EM where all its ingredients melt together
in a symbiosis of the most charming. There is the a very good and a
beautiful EM in this other little jewel, always carefully covered with
a beautiful digipack.

39816 Tronestam, Johan - Space Collection

It's with percussive effects that bang with the precision of a
metronome as big as a clock wall that "Redshift" gets opening. Effects
sizzling and reverberating, conceived with an organic touch, as well
as hollow breezes feed the abstruse vibes, whereas a line spreads a
harmonious approach which spins and floats like a sheet taken between
two layers of wind. A like of sequences over another one, "Redshift"
develops a slow rhythm on which gets grafted a melody blown by a
dreamy synth. And throughout these fine nuances in this structure
which limps with promptness, the synth weaves veils of sound effects
and sculpts good solos in the 2nd part which accompany a rhythmic
pattern became more convincing. Flirting on Jean-Michel Jarre's
harmonious momentums and the dynamism of sequenced rhythms as Chris
Franke knew so well how to build in the 70's, Johan Tronestam and his
“Space Collection” has gone slightly under radars during its release
last Jun e . It's just so baffling! Composed on the heels of Arthur
Went Above the Clouds, this album develops structures of rhythm which
are alike and which are not exactly similar in a cosmic environment
which seduces more and more since The Long Journey's release. On that
purpose, this collection of 10 tracks clocking an average of 8 minutes
ends this trilogy, dedicated to his father, commenced by this album in
2016. And the music here inhales the main lines of these two albums
with atmospheres sewn in an unlimited imagination and which draws its
resources from the secrets of cosmos. And the rhythms! Sometimes slow
and sometimes livened up of a marathon runner's pace, they remain
polyphased with binary and creative movements of the sequencer which,
hung onto sober electronic percussions, become some real addicting
treasures. This is some very good Johan Tronestam!
After an introduction stolen in elements of cloudiness, "Distance"
offers a good structure of rhythm built on a movement of alternation
from the sequencer. This rhythm skips with a beautiful fluidity on
where insert good nuances. The synth multiplies the effects, which are
rather in the spectral genre or a horror movie, and reserves us some
good solos towards finale with a touch very Jean-Michel Jarre who is a
strong source of inspiration for the Swedish musician. Simple, lively
and effective, one hooks on the very first listening! We can say the
same thing of "Next Steps", which offers a slightly more lively
rhythmic while the synth is more in mode; decorate your environment
with effects of esotericism. Survivor of an introduction of breaths
and hollow breezes, the structure of "A Ninth Member" makes varied the
rhythm of the sequencer in mode lento. Lascivious and mesmerizing,
with these layers of mists blown by these breezes from the void, the
rhythm gallops pleasantly with a little more excitement before heading
towards a finale slightly too hasty. Ambient with light rhythmic
breezes, the music of "N e ptune" reflects faithfully a sound
decoration to which get fed our imagination. It's not too ambient! The
rhythm is slow and floating, while the layers of ambiences are
dividing the galactic effects from the layers of faded voices. The
longer title of “Space Collection”, "Arthur's Journey Continues"
extricates itself from its dense cocoon of ambiences to offer a good
mid-tempo wrapped up in cosmic elements. The IDM style is not really
far from this title. "The Change" is another one very good title. Its
rhythm starts point A to point Z. Layers of voices caress the hybrid
movement of the sequencer, which is well supported by sober electronic
percussions, while the synth loosens good harmonious solos that we can
whistle with ease. And if the effects of cosmic gases are appreciated,
those of stroboscopic felted elements are just as much. The movement
of "Deep Field" is situated between "Distance" and "A Ninth Member" in
a livelier and steady proportion. And no introduction of ambient e
lements. But the primary charm of this title is situated in its very
melodious approach. It's the kind of thing which sticks deeply in our
ears, while the cosmic effects and its very big diversity reminds us
of the ingenious moments of Jean-Michel Jarre. "Pulsar" also succeeds
in getting loose from other structures of rhythm with a mid-tempo
which flirts with an up-tempo. Some great IDM here! Johan Tronestam
offers beautiful harmonious phases whereas the structure of rhythm
gets organized to charm us even more with developments always so
attractive. It's doubtless the most sober title of “Space Collection”
which ends with "The Viewer's Mind" and its energetic approach which
plunges us literally into what Jarre should have done right after
Magnetic Fields. Albeit that I really enjoyed Zoolook up to
Chronologie. And nobody would say that the French synthesist doesn't
evolve, whereas Johan Tronestam is at ease with these structures that
are alike and which nevertheless dissociate one f rom the other.
With a little more boldness and creativity in the way of developing
these electronic rhythms, Johan Tronestam always manages to unite his
fascinating rhythms with ambiences and melodies which surprise and
seduce constantly. A very good album of poetic and romanced cosmic
rock of the French School style.
