The amazing Russian music master – Bulb, delivers his 2nd solo offering for Silk in the form of a five track E.P. Vocals feature heavily on this release with all tracks apart from two getting the vox treatment as Bulb shows us his versatility and song arrangement skills. All vocals are sung by like minded Russian artists, which give the E.P a very magical feel. As a bonus the 5th track is a free giveaway on our soundcloud page.
Bulb – Buried Future E.P (Preview)
The first track of the E.P – ‘1000 Light Years Between Us’, features the sublime and dreamy vocal talents of Tiiu. The vocals are used sparingly and sit perfect between the spaced out chords, melodic leads and clicky percussion. A 170bm workout with enough bass to really work on the floor!
‘Not An Angel’ is a jazz inspired track that utilizes the vocals of Russian dubstep artist – ‘Marina Faib’. A catchy vocal hook coupled with glistening harmonies really brings out the best in her voice. Big sub and midrange keep the low-end moving while the track rounds off with a wicked groove layered with reverbs and razor tight percussion.
Again, the 3rd track uses the wonderful vocal talents of Tiiu. This track has a big cinematic feel to it with a verse-chorus arrangement and so, this is one of the more deeper exploits on the E.P. Playing a half-time rhythm, popping beats and percussion shimmer over intense strings and catchy melodies. Still, enough bass is present to make this track really go down well on any system.
‘Buried Future’ is the last track and rounds off the E.P nicely. This is Bulb’s solo effort and is aimed more towards the dance-floor. Filtered beats, layered percussion and a fast groove all sit over the top of deep chords and sensual pads. Melodies drift in and out of the arrangement underneath subtle atmospheres as delays and reverbs swish between the parts. Bass also is a major aspect of the tune with lots present in the lower frequencies.
