The brilliant half Swedish half French duo is back with a stunning formulated album.
This time with more dynamic and crystallized compositions they are pushing the boundaries once again.
The pair of sound architects, Magnus Birgersson ( Solar fields ) and Vincent Villuis ( Aes Dana ) created 10 new perfectly sculpted and engineered gems made of glitchy hazy trip-hop, glowing soulful sort of an aurora borealis atmospheric powerful ambient, dark psychedelic electronica with melancholic vibes yet with sparks of hope and glowing renewed polished Progressive morning trance.
In a addition to their wonderful composing and arrangement abilities the two dream weavers are using their excellent production skills as another instrument for intensifying the emotions and ambience that they masterfully poured into their creation, and as always from the Ultimae team and artists the combination between beautiful unique music and high quality production creates a big boost for the imagination and for the soul as well.
Already in their excellent first album [ Distances ] it’s very possible to hear the great potential in the collaboration between these two talented musicians and that they are here for exploring new directions.
[ Ephemeris ] is a multilayered album with perfectly realized ideas.
strong energetic bass lines, atmospheric moving melodies, sophisticated, tight and intense beats and rhythms and crispy fat sounds are the fibers of this album.
Beautiful illuminated spacey colorful textures are blending with solid, more rough and electrifying textures and enchanted hypnotic ones are there as well, lurking mysteriously, revealing themselves from time to time, falling from above or bursting from within, and all of this is manipulated by Magnus and Vincent in a very smart way, creating wonderful luminous soundscapes with emotional and psychedelic depths,so [ Ephemeris ] acts like a sequel in an epic story and the name - H.U.V.A Network ( Humans Under Visual Atmospheres ) really lives up to it’s meaning.
The artwork : all the Ultimae releases have a unique cover art and they are also great looking from inside, most of them arrive with a 16 pages booklet that contains beautiful photographic material and great graphic designs, and already from looking at the artwork it’s possible to receive some of the album’s moods and atmospheres. the inside outside cover art and booklet artwork of [ Ephemeris ] is absolutely mesmerizing. It’s very nice when a record label puts so much effort in the artwork as well as in the music, and this is something that I really appreciate cause it makes the whole listening experience even more unique and enjoyable.
So after a great last year and almost 9 years of releasing great music made by great artists the Ultimae label opened the new year with” Movements ” which is the astonishing sixth studio album of the excellent very talented musician and sound designer Solar Fields.
And now another amazing release - [ Ephemeris ] which is the outcome of the connection between two special sounds and styles, the unique Aes Dana sound and style and the unique Solar Fields sound an style, and that mixture is extraordinary !
