Back in July, Electronic Architecture 3 was released into the wild. A couple of months after the fact, it’s time for the first of three samplers.
Sampler 1 includes extended versions for Philthy Chit‘s Colours, Solarsweep‘s Thistle, Mistol Team‘s Algorrobal and, last, but not least, Basil O’Glue‘s Seven Sages. For this post, I’ll be focusing on the last of the four productions.
A grumbling base, coupled with masterfully arranged reverbed synths, are the two key components of Seven Sages. The atmosphere of the track is quite reminiscent of Sasha & Digweed’s Northern Exposure series, as it slowly morphs, accompanied by choir-like pads and subtle panning sounds. In a scene where more often than not loudness trumps quality, it’s refreshing to see that great tracks can still be found, if you know where to look. Basil‘s production is one of the highlights of the compilation for me, so I’m glad it’s getting released in all its glory. It damn well deserves to be.
Electronic Architecture Sampler 1 is out now on Beatport. Here’s a taste of what you can find inside:
