Album Review: Semee Family [Music For Peace]



Album Review: Semee Family [Music For Peace]
Good news does not happen every day, and today I want to announce the release of the ‘Semee Family’ album via Constant Culture.  Immediately, it grabbed my attention because it has a special purpose. In fact, I would describe this project as innovate in its kind because this is the first time I discover a release of an electronic music album for a specific charitable cause.

In particular, when the cause seeks the peace and stability of thousands of people that suffer the consequences of the conflict in the Middle East. As a blogger, I’m not here to talk about politics, but I am very happy to know that a group of talented producers from different backgrounds have joined forces to compile an album with a humanist bent.

All proceeds of the ‘Semee Family’ album, will benefit the Women Wage Peace Organization, which works to bring about a viable peace agreement in the conflict zone. Best of all, the twelve tracks aren’t boring at all. This is truly uplifting, an EDM material to celebrate life and forget about the past and its misperceptions. Future House, Tropical House, Drum & Bass, and more styles of music are present. Now is the time for all of us to do our part. Support this project on Bandcamp!

Check out my track-by-track review below:

1 – Seafarer feat. Ekko – Clairvoyant The lead off track from the Semee Family album, starts off softly and features beautiful female vocals and drops that make it a stand-out song.

2 – Kiko Franco & Zulker – Rise Definitely, energy and emotion are mixed in this electro-industrial banger with a dark tone.

3 – Panda – At Night Get ready to hear whimsical electronic sounds thanks to the synthesizers and crazy beats.

4 – Cezar Nedelcu – Said You Need Me The vocoded robot vocals on this nice dance-pop track, reminded me of Daft Punk music, many of you will love it.

5 – TRVS feat. Sara Tracy – Find Me It’s infectiously catchy from start to finish!!!

6 – Factuel – Someone This is stuff is spectacular, It’s all about the house-style groove and the booming kick drums.

7 – Chill Chu – Danse De L’amour There’s a simple piano intro that consequently is transformed and mixed with heavy electronic sounds.

8 – Alphant – Puri Puri A very interesting proposal that showcases Folk/Ethnic music and of course an instrumentation based on electronic sounds.

9 – Phazii – Lost DnB Tape Fast breakbeats which fit perfectly with the male voices, and the distorted bass pattern.

10 – Sakpata – The Profuguse Probably, the heaviest track on this album. If you’re a fan of Drum & Bass music, this is perfectly for you! It features diverse sound effects and also ravey vibes.

11 – Cezar Nedelcu – Phone Me Regular I must admit, I’m becoming a fan of Cezar Nedelcu’s productions as I come to know his music better. Again, this is another funky gem. It’s as brilliant as track #4, produced by the man himself.

12 – Chill Chu – Where Love @ The last track is simply wonderful, the soft and delicate ambient sound, this is the kind of tune you can chill out to.

In conclusion, all these artists deserve 5 stars for this great album, not only for the top quality songs they have produced, but also for their humanitarian effort to help us to live in a peaceful world. ★★★★★
