DIGITAL DOWNLOAD EP, Ultimae Records, 2014
"Tierra" is the first in a series of digital-Ep releases from the Lyon-based Ultimae-label that will see the light of day in 2014.
This 3-track album by Swedish composer Thomas Huttenlocher (aka I Awake) follows up on his debut album "The Core". Sonically, weíre landing in down-tempo/IDM territory with spacious/ethereal spheres along slight tribal undercurrents. The latter already kick in subtle on the first piece "Loft Lightning". Although the music has a certain cinematic and futuristic touch, thereís not much melody to be found on this Ep while it also features less trancy tendencies for which the label is also known for.
Donít forget to check out the EPís beautifully rendered video teaser on YouTube created by "Mr Solar Fields" Magnus Birgersson.
