“El conjunto del disco consigue dotar de introspección, una energía y luz crepuscular absorbente, y que cierran un disco que sabe cómo convertir la pulpa musical en un refrescante zumo de ambrosía.”

“….situado en el extremo opuesto de lo comercial, lo genérico, lo que funciona: lo que hace es, por el contrario, una especie de magma inestable de pulsaciones y resplandores, de trazos melódicos y texturas difuminadas, persiguiendo una expresión serena, espiritual, casi ascética.”

[51bts072] Tracya: Mindflux

18.11.2022 || Electronic, Atmospheric Techno

Late night, you’re wandering around some empty street you can’t recognize, occasionally passing by someone who’s as deep into their thoughts as you are. You manage to jump into a bus right after rain starts pouring on the quiet city. As it starts moving, you take out your headphones and play some tunes. The city’s lights and the rain on the windshield create a blurred background. This is the setting Mindflux is the soundtrack of.” (Tracya)

The ep contains five tracks with a strong electro influence and an hypnotic atmosphere:
>> Opening song “Shrine” is focused on the difference between the evolving riff, and the static sub-bass.
>> “Pulse+” is characterised by a deeper contrast between the acidic main melody and bassline, and aethereal pads scattered across the track.
>> “Culprit” maintains the energy level reached with the previous song. A synthetic voice reminds us that we’re still deep into a realm created by oscillators, envelopes and signal processors.
>> “The Frustration of the Z” shifts the focus back on the evolution of the bassline and main riff. Both of them have been sequenced with a combination of Max devices, which allowed the melodies to flow freely and in a unpredictable way.
>> “Mindflux” is a journey into spacey atmosphere, where the shiny melody jumps around a bouncy and dark bass.
