|Subaqueous Album Releasing May 22nd|
Making music is an act of devotion for Seattle’s Subaqueous, who brings the mysteries of the subconscious to light in his second full-length album Immerge. Working with a variety of guest artists from vocalists to udu players, Subaqueous creates a fluid, well balanced album of downtempo electronica inhabited by tribal drums, deep grooves and vagrant melodies.
Using gypsy scales and the blues to create an enigmatic vibe, Immerge evokes an inner journey through trance-inducing basslines that roll beneath a heavy beauty. Lead single “Gypsy Splash” cloaks a thick, soothing jam with multiple layers and quickly turns bizarre, emerging through fun sonic chunks with a mysterious melody that leaves you wandering - music for modern day nomads.
The unsettlingly beauty of “Cryptic” lurks beneath a broad bassline, brushed across by astral winds until it gradually flows over. “Flux” builds its energy to a gritty intensity with a drop that slides in sideways, while “In Spire” uses loose drums and low lights to breath fresh air into a shimmering groove.
From soothing tracks with gritty edges to hip-shaking world sounds and spaced-out desert jams, the distinct emotional atmosphere of Immerge creates a contented glow of revelation that never has to come up for air.
Album hits the shelves May 22nd.
