Godly gold. Modern producers should really take note. Just listen to how uses the bassline as an effective tool, he even changes the rhythm of it which we never hear in new tracks.

Enjoy.




and a trip into the ambient jungle also on the ep in the form of the track "inner journey"

Godly tracks, godly producer, godly label. Thanks god for my ears and that I can feel this. Clanger mix is the best.

How fucking silly it is, how fucking awesome it is!

I mean, if we slate a 2022 track/vocalist for having stupid lyrics, what can we say about "The colours here are white...golden...purple...violet"?! If that came out in 2022 we wouldn't stop at insults.

But it works so fucking well, however imperfect the tracks are. My fav is the Indigo Mix, absolutely. Clanger at #2, bit too many changes and switches in it. The ambient track is also phenomenal, so minimalistic.

The beat gives me Astral Projection goa trance vibes
I don't think the lyrics are a negative for the track. Sure, they're "bad," but attention is not drawn to them the same way vocal trance focuses on vocals. The vocals here are just a random sample like the trippy vocal samples from goa or any other classic track.

Yeah by no means are the vocals bad, it's quite the opposite. They just work, because they fit the overall vibe. The way she says "purple" is quite unique, love that.
