Neptun 505 - Airgarden EP [Suffused Music, SMD211]
The 211th release on Suffused Music welcomes Neptun 505 back to the label for his debut EP. The Polish artist first appeared on the Lithuanian imprint in June of 2016 with a remix of ‘Looking For’ by Valentine Morgen and Rembrand. A contribution to the label’s acclaimed ‘Initializing’ series followed in September of 2017, ultimately leading to his first artist EP entitled ‘Airgarden’.
Forever in search of the perfect sound, Neptun 505 regularly transcends genres within his own compositions. As evidenced by the title track, the Polish artist explores elements of techno, electronica and deep house. It’s spacious framework is infinitely groovy, housing a variety of astral designs and quirky electronics, before a smooth atmospheric overlay seals it’s emotive brilliance.
Continuing with ‘Blue in Grey’ the narrative shifts into deep melodic territory as mystical motifs gradually converge around a sturdy framework. Meadoring melodies bend the musical spectrum, before layers of detailed percussion add momentous waves, drifting perfectly into a stripped down second act, working to build both drama and emotion before the groove gets beefed up for a purring finale.
The EP concludes with the previously released ‘Disco Volante’ which was a standout on the label’s ‘Initializing, Vol. 14’ collection. Sounding fresher than ever it’s clustered bass stabs carve out a unique, rugged and undeniably powerful groove. Poignant melodies and luminous pads shape the journey in a profound way before a timely break shifts the energy into a grandiose finale. A broad and immensely satisfying debut EP from Neptun 505 on Suffused Music, which sets a high precedent for the Polish artist as 2018 begins to unfold.
