Trance, as the name suggests, relies on the creation of thoroughly hypnotic soundscapes, meant to showcase both the producer’s ability to arrange sounds and to capture the listener’s attention. The importance of a well-crafted atmosphere is nicely illustrated in Relativ‘s debut album, released under TesseracT Studio.
Gates Of Perception is a an exploration of the progressive and psy areas of trance, with great attention to detail, very present base lines and well fitted vocal samples. As always with these things, one track in particular has gotten my attention. That’s not to say the rest aren’t good, far from it. This one though, I’ve really enjoyed.
As befits a production of this kind, Artificial Soul is all about the relentless delivery of sound, awash with acids, sweeps and gated delayed vocal chops. The heavy base line anchors it to the ground providing the last piece of this dizzying musical puzzle. If you enjoy psy-trance, it’s worth getting the album for this track alone.
The Gates Of Perception are now open. Come in.
