First up we have Joal's Landscapes with a superb remix from Just Her. Just Her is a very much in-demand DJ, producer and musician, her stellar songwriting and engineering work with Him_Self_Her has propelled her into the upper reaches of the underground music scene. She has seen releases with world class labels such as Toolroom, Crosstown Rebels and Suara and gained a wealth of Beatport chart positions, an Essential New tune on Radio 1 and gigs all over the world. Here she delivers yet another deep and melodic slice house music utilising that soft, raw vocal from Piermaria. Tender beats lead the way driving a tight drum section that generates a steady rhythm. Deep droning basses dominate the sound while melancholic pads and brighter melodies sweep by. A truly hypnotic piece that will be perfect for those late night sessions.
Polygon is up next and this one is a stomper filled with beautiful tech house vibes and wonderful synths. Punchy beats set us on our way with a smooth rhythmic percussion section in tow. A deep yet subtle bass lies on the low end as scathing synths fade in with a chaotic arpeggio fashion. Those synths will dig deep into your brain and force you to move with little respite. A definite must have track in any peak time set.
Finally we have the title track, The Landscape is Fading which intros with a real nice, rich, well rounded kick drum alongside stuttering hi hats and layering percussions. Dark pads fade in as subtle melodies begin to appear. Distant vocals create a wonderful hair raising moment that blends effortlessly into the groove and providing a melancholic edge to the sound. A solid, deep rooted track that will not disappoint.
