The sublime Juno Rising opens the release, offering up a sublime journey through the cosmos and beyond. A chugging bassline surrounded by cosmic FX, spirited arpeggios and striking pads sit on a bed of punchy beats and shuffling percussions which paves the way for smooth, flowing rhythms. The break settles in to an immersive, meditative sequence, building to a climax and taking us to the final act in this absolute stunner of a track. Dana concludes the release, with a beautifully balanced groove made up of warm beats, lush pads and powerful bass stabs lays the foundations for smooth, fluid rhythms. The attention to detail on the break is stunning, with subtle FX, sprinkles of delicate melodies and an intriguing spoken vocal which takes us back to the main groove for the duration.
