Having already featured on last month's Atlant VOYAGER VA Soma Soul (Francesco Parla, Ralph Wirth) now take centre stage to build upon fine releases for Jonas Rathsman's ELEMENTS, Endangered and RADIANT. Both originals feature the beguiling vocals of the UK's Ed Begley.
The ambient intimate and unique textures of title track 'Complacency' really showcase what Soma Soul are all about. Cascading piano lines, cinematic sweeps and classy restraint really emphasise each softly sung lyric, with the sum of all parts creating wonderment and beauty.
For the remix we called on Colyn, fresh from his 'Concepts Of Love' EP for RÜFÜS DU SOL's Rose Avenue plus tracks on the mighty Afterlife UNITY and DGTL's latest VA. Colyn gives a remixing masterclass, using Ed's melancholic vocal as the foundation to craft layer upon layer of heart wrenching melodies as the pure emotion of 'Complacency' digs deep into your soul.
Soma Soul stretch out further on 'Breaking Dawn' to create a mesmerising piece of electronica with whirring glitchy flourishes underpinning Ed Begley's stunning vocal performance. Here all emotions are laid bare, with each part arranged to add to the story and invigorate the senses, making you feel alive.
BOg's remix of Breaking Dawn closes ATL038 by taking our minds and our dreams back onto the dance-floor. Atlant's head honcho crafts an intense club journey full of emotion and energy. Here Ed's poignant words are underpinned by deep bass pulses, rasping hats and stirring synths to brilliant effect.
During these unique times across the world we feel it's important to remain positive, delivering music to capture the imagination and touch our listeners hearts. A big thank you to Soma Soul, Colyn and Ed Begley. Stay safe all.
