The EP begins with the deep, solemn vibes of 'Rosa Petalos'. Backed by a warm, rolling groove the piece moves through fluffy motifs and wavering atmospheres before a catchy lead theme initiates the main break. A smooth, rising tension carries the interlude, building anticipation for a classy drop and exhilarating finale. The companion piece 'Anemona' comes in more hypnotic with twinkly bells, ethereal vocals and an expansive break that's sure to bring emotion to the dance floor.
The lone interpretation of 'Rosa Petalos' is provided by Jaap Ligthart who is making his first appearance on Just Movement. The Dutch artist is much loved in the progressive underground with an impressive discography that includes releases on Click Records, Manual Music and Selador. Now making his much anticipated Just Movement debut he takes 'Rosa Petalos' into groovy, melodic territory. A revamped bass line brings great dance floor sensibility while the main themes add quirky flair. The luminous storyboard is something to get lost in as it's radiant beauty lifts the third act further into the cosmos.
The release concludes with Just Movement label artist Stage Van H returning for his 26th appearance. The Dutch artist is widely regarded for shaping the label's sound early on and has also showcased his music on many great labels such as Movement Recordings and Vapour. Here Stage brings an airy beauty to 'Anemona' with delicate melodies, sweeping atmospheres and breathy vocals. A stunning interpretation and a perfect way to round out another gorgeous release for Just Movement
