Following in the footsteps of his recent "Let You" EP on our imprint, Australian artist Approaching Black presents the "Foldup Chairs" EP, featuring three phenomenal chillout and downtempo cuts.
The title track, "Foldup Chairs," takes off with an incredibly lush soundscape, including hypnotizing pad layers and intriguing sound effects. Later, stunning and calm percussion elements emerge, perfectly accompanied by remarkable pad variations.
"Nadi" begins with a mesmerizing atmosphere, featuring well-crafted melodies and breathtaking grooves. Soon thereafter, an incredibly catchy rhythm is introduced, which evokes a summer mood and immediately directs the listener's thoughts to beach landscapes.
Rounding out the "Foldup Chairs" EP, "The Space Between" showcases an astonishingly beautiful atmosphere, including numerous soothing string layers and lovely piano strokes.
So many sunny, feel good vibes, no wonder this album is cited as a pillar of the synthwave genre. Even today, this stands out from the crowd with all it's catchy and well crafted heart and soul. Hard to pick a favorite but...... John Ponton, III
