On the 28th of September Monument was pleased to have hosted the amazing Valentino Mora, at what was yet another successful club night at BLÅ in Oslo, Norway.
For four hours, the IDO label head with his deep distinctive slow burn touch, put on quite the show. A sublime execution loaded with cosmic shimmer, morphing bass-lines and tribal percussion. Monuments stomping ground was set to slow cook.
Потрясная совместная работа Leon Bolier и Sied van Riel, из дебютного альбома Леона: Atmostopia, апогей основной темы - шедеврален.
A solid masterpiece by two great friends!
It starts of promising at least! By 01:02 the beat hits and drags us into its trippy atmosphere… This is going to be a trippy affaire, folks. Enter 02:04, a typical Bolierian xylophone like instrument starts playing whilst the background pad reveals the outlines of a melody. 3 minutes in we reach the breakdown. The rich background textures that have defined the album are ever present, albeit less glitch fx like in the album’s opener. Subtly that build-up pad is backed by a few tuned down counterparts which don’t fully tread to the center stage until after the climax. A very dreamy, Progressive team-up from Leon and Sied which perfectly fits the flow of the album. After 7 minutes it breaks off into lesser elements until we are left with a pretty bouncy percussion groove… You’ve just gotta love how sophisticated this track progresses from start to finish! And that’s five straight beauties for WSTLNDR. He’s on a roll, isn’t he?
Masterfully crafted sound-fields, realized from the deepest recesses of Human awareness, shift the listener into a state of dreaming, and breathe life into an incredible world of power and knowledge. Not for the casual listener.
