It's a great privilege to feature Blue Symmetry once again on our imprint. A downtempo project, featuring electronic music veterans Blugazer (instrumentation) and Catherine (vocals), Blue Symmetry made an indelible impression on our community last year, with the arrival of their debut artist album, "Color The Afterglow." Their latest release, "Transitions," includes "Hover," the closing track on our recent "Only Silk 04" compilation release.
The previously unreleased "Neighbourhoods" kicks off the EP. In the early going, a steady deep house beat is punctuated by a fluttering, hypnotic synth, as well as various atmospheric effects. We're met by Catherine's effortlessly soothing and evocative vocals at the quarter turn. As the song progresses, the listener continues to drift away into a mellifluous and tranquil sea of sound. For fans who desire vocal-less downtempo, we've also included a Dub Mix of this one.
The lush broken-beat cut, "Hover," rounds out the package. Blue Symmetry's visionary soundscape is at once erotic and suspenseful, not unlike Massive Attack's downtempo classic "Teardrop." Catherine's mature and polished vocal and Blugazer's intricate and compositionally rich instrumental have never sounded better in unison.
