Cyan85 – Lucid Intervals [Voitax]

| | , ,

Cyan85 has found a home at Voitax. The Berlin label is delighted with this new electro talent and is once again betting on him, who we predict will have a good career in this sound field. Nearly a year since his debut on this platform with Bay Of Sampieri, Cyan85 has released a solo album on Voitax again, although not so long ago we heard from him, he was one of the artists chosen for the merger between Midnight Shift and Voitax, in which there was also a collaboration agreement between the artists of the two labels.

Lucid Intervals is a 9-track album in which he demonstrates his knack for crafting ambitious pieces to establish himself as a respected producer. The LP aims to explore a variety of dystopian atmospheres and energies throughout nine infectious and carefully crafted tracks that build on electro’s rich heritage without failing to infuse it with Cyan85’s very own remarkable, dreamy electronic signature.

Low Frequency Phantasy opens up shop with an ode to classic electro. A sturdy broken beat anthem, loaded with dreamy pads, a fierce hook and sleek vox. Sharp, saturated, straight four-to-the-floor rhythms and an aggressive arpeggio riff drives things into a more energetic direction which makes Elektro 0ffens1ve a surefire dance floor weapon.

The aquatic journey continues to unfold with Contamination Ph0nk. Funky arpeggios propel the track forward, while the haunting melodies guide the heavy low-end to mysterious corners of what electro has to offer.

Data Lag introduces some dub to the party. Conventional electro grooves, stomach curdling subs and a phased out top end. Electro minimalism at its finest.

The flip side reaches for a more emotional approach. Time Elapsed serves up a nice journey with its beautifully crafted pads, soothing melodies and a powerful bass-line as it honours its given name and will stay forever in our head with its timeless elements.

In Early Defects Cyan85 channels his inner Dopplereffekt. Hypnotism served with a side of dark, modulated pads and a sawing bassline that conjures some thrilling atmospheres.

Strangelet Research Lab is a down tempo effort which utilises melancholy pads, downbeat breaks and vocoder magic, to create a very introverted, paranoid journey.

Aquasma lightens up the energy before the journey comes closer to its end. Funky, walking basslines provide the foundations for an exploration into the unknown as the evolving melodies cement this track into timelessness.

Hylia Echoes closes this powerful album with a short and beautiful number. An essence of grime is brought to the table via the bass stabs only to be eased into infinity as the track closes its doors as mysteriously as it opens.

Release date: July 27th, 2020.
