The first track to start of the incredible package is called 'Viola', a melody driven production that shimmers a luscious dose of summer so elegantly that one cannot help but to close their eyes and zone out to the heart stopping sounds heard. With a brilliant range of chords used, the overall feeling of this track bursts with that tropical yet progressive structure we all love. Upbeat, refreshing and so well constructed, this is by far an epic start to a quality EP.
Next we have the alluringly titled 'Angelic Doll' which lives up to the name impressively. It is a concoction of beautiful light melodic sounds that float on a bed of rhythmic and addictive percussion sounds. The electronic synths scattered across it adds in that lovely and light and jaunty feel, making it a track that oozes feel good vibes and pleasant moments.
Following this, we have the intriguingly titled Nocturnal Sky', a slightly deeper and broody sounding release compared to the first two originals. Its different sound is a knockout to our senses as we are flooded with an onslaught of hypnotic kicks and hi hats that boast big bass. The beautiful melodic line that arises takes our breath away with the stunning piano which is accentuated by the tender sound of bells clashing together with cymbals. Definitely one that can set the scene of a beautiful dark sky crashing down onto the waves, this well composed track speaks volumes of beauty and precision.
Last but not least we have the EP title track, 'Blank'. We are instantly draw in by the colorful and warm chord structure that sounds lively and inviting. The reverberating percussions follow on from the previous track, which in turn gets one in a pleasant and positive mood. So much energy and emotion in something so delicate and relaxing, this track showcases the true extent of how beautiful and captivating the music of progressive house is. Another that is melody ladened to the core, you can be sure to be engulfed by waves of pure, limitless emotion. The amazing addition of the string instruments combine it all into something that we happily drown in.
