Loot Recordings kick off 2019 with a fantastic EP from new and enigmatic artist Silence Path, featuring remixes from Powel, Quatri and Yoni Yarchi.
Silence Path is a new moniker from an artist who says this alias “came to life because of the desire to express the music in another way and to convey it to another level with a much more spiritual story than before.” He is someone who captures a harmonious universe of experimental sounds that are overflowing with emotion and spiritual feelings from start to finish.
01. In Perfect Harmony
02. In Perfect Harmony (Powel Remix)
04. Nebula (Quatri Remix)
05. Nebula (Yoni Yarchi Remix)
The title track is the superb ‘In Perfect Harmony’, a subtle and hypnotic affair, with an evolving soundscape that recalls the beach, with echoing percussion, tinkling pianos and lush pads. The creative genius of Powel returns to Loot once again to deliver a remix that highlights the original melodies, twisting things up with heavenly string arrangements and soothing bass. The next fantastic original is ‘Nebula’ and it focuses on a memorable melody that’s blended with the gentle sounds of nature, ethereal voices and rising strings to create a musical story.
The first of the two ‘Nebula’ remixes comes from Quatri who hails from Damascus but is based in Paris and fuses organic and lighthearted sounds with heavy modular rhythms. With his version he turns up the excitement with a cosmic feel, cleverly distorting the melodic hook with smart effects and swelling, ecstatic synths. Next up is Yoni Yarchi’s remix. He is based in Tel Aviv and brings plenty of magical musicality to his productions on labels like this one as well as Definitive and Nie Wieder Schlafen. Here he serves up a magical journey of emotional frequencies and euphoric pads where the original elements shine.
The closing track is the excellent ‘Illusion,’ which combines playful melodies and warm basslines to create a breezy, summer-like vibe.
This EP is a masterfully modern statement of dance music that very much comes from the heart.
