For an artist who was once grounded in progressive house Dio has now found a place in the deeper realms of electronic music. It's been a remarkable progression and one which continues on the lead cut 'Athanasia'. Backed by a framework of tight beats, organic drums and charged rhythms comes mystical atmospheres and radiant themes. Strummy motifs coupled with serene flutes makes for a soulful and evolving storyboard. It's a production which comes from the heart, one to cherish for special occasions and no doubt a highly memorable selection for your dance floor. A one of a kind gem from Dio S.
The journey continues with the deep, techno inspired vibes of 'Time For Change'. Immediately captivating, it's dubbed out tones and rolling percussion play off a sultry low end, making for an irresistible, hip swinging groove. Undeniably late night, it's hypnotic appeal grows subtly, before the second of two breaks shifts the narrative into emotive territory. Wistful atmospheres, tonal waves and bassy rumblings create anticipatory vibes, effortlessly transitioning into a tasteful build and smooth rush, sparking a percussive finale.
The release concludes in fine fashion with the mid tempo burner 'Anemoni'. Beginning with meandering atmospheres, the energy comes down a touch while layers of drums build in an amazing organic space. Gentle swells and fragmented instrumentation trail across the framework, before a strong rhythmic complement locks down a friendly dance floor swing. A series of timely breaks keeps the narrative fresh, eventually leading to a final interlude of tonal creativities and impassioned wails. Groovy and emotive in equal measure it rounds out what is an impassioned collection of music from Dio S.
