WATTS & OHMS – WATTS & OHMS (BONZAI ELEMENTAL)
April 17th, 2013
Watts & Ohms debut on Elemental with a blissed out selection of quality downtempo vibes.
First up is “Stella Solaris”, kicking off with a spacey synth vibe, a wonderful strumming acoustic guitar is a perfect contrast with a sublime female vocal taking this to a whole new level. Top quality FX and dreamy pads tie this track up nicely.
“Breathing In” is up next, another intro that gives the feeling of endless space with the expertly crafted pads taking your mind far away from reality. Very sweet subtle melodies tease throughout this track, sit back and chill with this stunning work.
“Therix” is a masterclass in soundscaping, easily something that could easily be used in a movie score, high quality chill is where it’s at.
“Split Feelings” takes on a bit of a trancey intro with a sweeping melodic arp with a cool groove on the drums coming through. Very uplifting in nature with a beautiful piano taking the focus, perfect for any lazy day.
Next we have “24 Muller Street”, a myriad of melodies from many instruments converging to create an awesome journey through sound. Lots of reversing style which always adds mystery and brought together with brilliant FX work.
“I Can’t Stop” would give the impression of a full on house track judging by the intro, then a beautiful acoustic guitar enters the arena which is soon backed up with an electric riff, chunky bass and a laidback groove on the drums. The big focus on this track is the spoken vocal, just amazing, really keeps you locked on and wanting more of this story.
“Watt Do I Want” is a pure blissed out journey through sound, superb FX and melodies created with guitars backed up with a very melodic bassline, get a drink and get chilled with this stunning work.
“Feel My Pulz” pulls out the classic house stabs from the intro and builds on this to create a very groovy upbeat vibe. The guitars are in all the right place and a slight hint of an acid bassline takes the track to a new height, brilliant.
“Stone Tears” is a great journey through the more bassy sounds on offer with wonderfully surreal pads adding many textures along the way, loads of big glitchy acid squelches sound great on this track.
Finally we have “Slowmotion FF”, very downtempo vibe with lots of sweeping pads and melodies. Another track for those lazy, lazy days where you can let your mind wander to a safe happy place!
