Kicking off Anomaly (Part 1) are Soul Button & Modeplex with their track, 'Ardor'. It has a strong beginning that builds steadily to a wide, misty soundscape, feeling both peaceful and motivating.
It then pulls back to a more minimal, rhythm-driven ending that sets the tone for the next track, 'Dome' by Ceas. Here Ceas uses a melody to take the listener into a suspended space, caught between tension and release. The track develops with subtle changes in bass and percussion, whilst tying each section together with a consistent theme.
The third track, 'Catharsis' by Clawz SG & Soul Button, introduces layers of smoother tones, echoing to give a sense of mystery and wonder. There is a softness to this track combines with hints of darkness to make a compelling number.
Clawz SG continues with 'Esperanza', making a statement with a beginning focused on unusual, earthy percussion. Hypnotic synths build steadily before the track erupts into a powerful, stadium-worthy finale.
The final appearance of Clawz SG on the album is 'Lost Signal', co-written by Ceas. Layers of syncopation set this track apart as a stand-out with its distinct energy and rhythm, while a delicate transitional section places this in the space between ethereal and traditional techno.
Immerse yourselves and let it take you on a journey of pure aural pleasure. Be on the lookout as Part 2 is just right around the corner to complete this stunning album.
