Anodyne Industries Out 21St October Locked Concept / Canberra, Australia
Beautiful, haunting electronic textures fill the tracks with rich layered soundscapes of colorful, industrial, atmospheric sounds that will lift and engage you. Giant syncopated beats all fall into place perfectly. This is a sound that pulls you in while it grows. Within its composition, it is clear to me that these tracks were produced with a lot of emotion and attention to detail. Giving each sound its own area to breathe and be heard. This technique is one That i appreciate, because it takes time and effort, that in the end gives the listener the very best audio experience. For those who allow themselves the opportunity to put a set of headphones on, and let the music take them on a journey to someplace new, they will not be disappointed. I will be anticipating more from Anodyne Industries in the future. Without a doubt, this is just the beginning of an evolution of sound that will continue to mature with what comes next. With that in mind, I am also including a guest mix, for those that want to continue the trip as I did. Lastly, I would also recommend road testing this mix after midnight. Nothing sounds better than hearing it in your whip after the rest of the world is asleep. At night, when the moon is bright, the music is mine. May the road rise with you.
