Mythos, aka Berlin-based musician Stephan Kaske, has come up with the idea to revive surround sound, which was introduced several years ago in hifi-world, but also rather quickly abandoned by the major manufacturers of audio equipment.
“Surround Sound Offensive” offers a range of 11 accessible, contemporary electronic tracks which follow nicely in the footsteps set out by the Berliner School style.
Certain melodies and the way of composition occasionally reminded me of Ad Visser’s album “Sobrietas”, especially when it comes to the moody sequencers loops and sound rendition. Of all tracks, the second (more quiet) theme and the simple but effective eight tune are worth a mention.
Those looking for unique spacious dimensions in sound should not hesitate trying this recording, a special campaign for surround sound, dolby pro logic (™) and musical high-tech.
