Album Review: Forest Robots – Supermoon Moonlight, Pt. One

Published

Album Review: Forest Robots - Supermoon Moonlight, Pt. One
Forest Robots’ first album examines the wonders of nature through music. ‘Supermoon Moonlight, Pt. One’, was born after the LA composer explored the landscapes at Sierra Nevada. According to the artist, this record makes a call to spend more time outdoors, and it’s especially dedicated to his daughter. Furthermore, If I am not mistaken, he features some elements of classical music in conjunction with pure Electronica. In addition, the song titles seem to be taken from a very poetic world that is correlated with the album name. This turns out to be a fantasy story in the midst of nature but there are no vocals, just exquisite ambient sounds.

Following, you will enjoy my concrete analysis track-by-track.

1 – A Path Among the Woods
There’s a strong distortion that intentionally alters the smooth composition, but at the same time, this becomes a magical effect. On the other hand, the harp that can be heard throughout the song gives this intro track a touch of refinement.

2 – Times When I Know You Watch the Sky, Pt 1
The continuous chimes remind me a little of the Christmas season. Indeed, I also found myself immersed in its cinematic beat construction.

3 – Shapes Shifts in the Distant Shadows
Here we have lively electronic music and something more danceable in comparison with the previous two that are designed rather to contemplate them sitting on the sofa or lying on the bed.

4 – Last Silvers of Moonlight
A dark piano melody will captivate you from the beginning to the end. The first thing that comes to mind is a horror or thriller movie. An excellent piece that makes a contrast with the rest of the tracks of this album. I really think Forest Robots has a brilliant future as a composer of soundtracks for Hollywood movies.

5 – Silhouettes Follow the Echoes
For a moment, I felt I was floating in space. It might sound funny to say, but this song applies very well to astronauts. By all means, he creates a progressive tune and its rhythm becomes more intense little by little.

6 – Then the Spider Turned into a Cloud

The slow and gentle sound creates a mysterious atmosphere. I would venture to say he also incorporates oriental sounding instrumentation at the same time.

7 – Mandelbrots in Winter
At the start, I thought this was very relaxing but then the TR-808 drum beats came to provide dynamism and something vibrant to the whole song. Without this last element, this could have been a downtempo number.

8 – While Birds Dream of Dawn and Wind
Once again, I think he repeats the same synths that were used on the previous track. The only difference I found is the presence of new audio effects that seem to come from outer space.

9 – By the Stillness of the Lake
This is the shortest song from the album. With just one minute and seventeen seconds, Forest Robots designs a soundscape that feels delicate. A little melody that incites you to enter the alpha state of mind.

10 – Follow the Towers to the Moon
The album has a great ending with bright melodies. An array of colorful electronic textures are properly calibrated to leave listeners with a memorable experience.

In conclusion, if the day has you stressed or worries go round and round in your head, then ‘Supermoon Moonlight, Pt. One’ is the best free medicine. Just close your eyes and chill out with these wonderful compositions.

Japan
Throttle
explores the theme of home with plenty of groove in his new single “Japan”, out now on Monstercat. In his true thoughtful fashion, the Aussie producer blends euphonious vocals with delicate melodies, a soft drop and inspiring lyrics to make a track that will both touch your heart and get your feet moving. We have all felt lost and alone in the world at some point in our lives, longing for a familiar place to call home – maybe your childhood house or favorite vacation spot, or loved one’s arms – “Japan” truly expresses this in a sonic capacity with its wistful and yet hopeful notes. “Japan” follows Throttle’s recent single “Dreamer,” which marked his return to Monstercat after six long years, putting him firmly back on the map in a “home” with one of electronic music’s most forward-thinking imprints.

Imagine collaborating with the likes of Galantis and Oliver Heldens, officially remixing Ed Sheeran and performing at Tomorrowland all before your 21st birthday; while a dream for most, this was the reality for Throttle. After cultivating a unique blend of organic and electronic sounds featured in his popular singles “Hit the Road Jack” (which was used in the official trailer for Ocean’s 8) and “Tell Me You Love Me,” Throttle’s music has found homes on notable labels including PRMD, Spinnin’ Records, Warner Music, and Universal. He has put his signature touch on remixes for Avicii, Armin Van Buuren, Earth Wind & Fire, Ed Sheeran, Snakehips and more and has production credits for Sabrina Claudio, David Guetta & Martin Garrix. Throttle has gained a loyal following, with 200 million streams each month on Spotify and fans that show up for his sets around the globe, including Tomorrowland, Sziget, EDC Las Vegas and more. “Dreamer” and “Japan” are the beginning of a new era for Throttle, and we can’t wait to see what he comes up with next!

Transport Your Mind To Another Place With Alex Haas & Bill Laswell’s New Album

Published

By

Alex Haas

Alex Haas and Bill Laswell are immersed in music since the late 70s. Both Producers’ creativity led them to work with big names in the industry like David Bowie, PIL, The Ramones, Prince, Brian Eno, and many more. Without a doubt, throughout their careers, they have experimented with various rhythms. Naturally, that’s what art is about, to evolve and transform so you don’t bore your audience. Recently, I’m totally enjoying their latest album ‘Smoke + Glass’ because they bet on Trip Hop, which will give you some Massive Attack vibes. Nevertheless, they explore jazzy and ambient elements too.

Their new full body of work will relax you from start to finish. Here we have a record that is over 40 minutes of chilled-out Electronica. Inspired in urban atmospheres, all these instrumental tracks can transport your mind to another place. Not to mention, it was recorded in different destinations such as Paris, NYC, Morocco and even South East Asia. That being said, its sonic variety is the key to the taste. To sum up, they have created a feel-good sound of their own.

Shlizk
In a male-dominated DJing industry, Ashley Haenel aka Shlizk becomes an inspiration for women. Believe it or not, she’s a multifaceted artist that excels in singing, producing and even songwriting. Playing at legendary clubs like Marquee and Space, the 23-year-old talent releases two tracks for fans of electronic music. The original single “Personality Disorder” takes you on a  Dubstep-like journey by incorporating distorting sounds that increase tension. Somehow, she has picked the proper rhythm and title for this tune, don’t you think?…

Another surprising gem is the House-flavored remix treatment she displays on Billie Ellish‘s “When The Party’s Over”. Without a doubt, she gives the original a new lease of life. In other words, she makes it shine with a new light as it feels upbeat and delicate at the same time. Having performed alongside big names in the EDM scene (Diplo, The Chainsmokers, Fareoh, etc.), you can expect more exciting news from this creative lady in the coming months. Stay tuned!
