The journey begins with the appropriately titled 'Welcome (Intro Mix)'. It's excursion into poignant motifs and vibrant key sequences is offset with warm bass swells and soft chords. It's state of continual bliss sets a positive vibe moving forward to the albums second selection 'Come With Me'. Here we see the Magnetic Brothers getting deep, chunky and perfectly dialled for the dance floor. Anchored by a mountainous groove, a storyboard of alien-like vocal stabs begins to flow through the framework. Quirky bass modulation along with sweeping sheets of white noise make for an exhilarating first act and take the track into the break. Getting further twisted, Anton and Arthur's design skills come to life with a collage of tripped out audio dominating the interlude, ultimately setting up a dramatic conclusion.
The album's third selection 'Confession' explores another area of the Magnetic Brothers seemingly endless studio repertoire. For as much as Anton and Arthur are loved for their dubbed out, late night groovers the duo is also adept at full vocal projects which 'Confession' showcases once again. Led by the silky smooth voice of Laladee, it's an alluring composition from start to finish. Moments of sheer beauty are offset with clever and moderately twisted design. It's the ultimate contrast and recalls some of Renaissance Records most memorable moments. All good sound stories effortlessly cast the genre barriers aside and captivate audiences from all corners of electronic music. On 'Luna 2017' Anton and Arthur delve into broken beats, piano motifs and ethereal vocals. Downtempo in nature and deeply emotive, it's soulful synth swells and blissful flutes make for one of the albums most heartfelt moments, and perhaps one of the Magnetic Brothers most musically inspired creations to date.
'Reincarnation' marks the albums midway point and finds Anton and Arthur crafting a dark and moody late night gem. Filled with dubby qualities and groovy bass hooks it sets a fresh presence straight away. The acid like leads, for all their nasally quality are incredibly captivating and lift the track with a series of offset tones making for one of the albums most unique and memorable moments. A gritty and moderately twisted second half should be for magical on a clued up dance floor and once again showcases the duos incredible versatility. The tracks moody energy acts as the perfect prelude to 'Russian Astronaut Story', a deep, sci-fi inspired piece with a captivating narrative. It's cavernous groove, haunting vocal elements and otherworldly space cast a melancholic tone but it's the tracks eloquent themes which ultimately bring it to life.
