Welcome to the sixth weekly review! This week we’ve got some insanity from Billain, a beautiful piece to drift away with from Julian Kruse, and a very nice piece by Electus.
Billain – Device Nine
As I may have mentioned previously, Billain is one of my biggest inspirations. His music is insane – particularly the stuff from around 2011. This song is more recent than that, but I think we can handle it.
Mysterious and full of interesting stuff in classic Billain style, ‘Device Nine’ is a super fun song all the way through. Even just on the surface it’s an interesting song, but with music like this (and much more, in the D&B scene), an attentive listener can notice awesome little snips of weirdness and exciting, subtle sounds. For me that’s half of what Drum & Bass is about.
Julian Kruse – Weightless
Some chilled out songs just flow so well. There are some songs out there that feel like it takes effort to listen to when they are supposed to be the opposite of that. ‘Weightless’ is exactly what a relaxing song should be – actually relaxing. While it is simple, it keeps up interest in the best of ways, and doesn’t overstay its welcome by dragging on for no reason. This song is a very nice addition to any of your chilled-out playlists. You can also download this song free from the Soundcloud page!
Electus – Nero
This is one of the more atmospheric songs I’ve heard in a while. I found Electus on Youtube a few months ago, with another beautiful song. ‘Nero’ incorporates some subtle foley, which is probably my favorite thing ever. The soaring piano melody and smooth bass, combined with that foley used in – if you ask me – the perfect manner, all combine to give this song a touching atmosphere and provide for a very nice listen.
Thanks for joining us again for A Weekly Review! I hope you enjoyed the music I’ve found this week, and stay tuned for more!
