For Radikon catalog number 37, Naeiiv once again conjures the ghosts of his wildly pitching machines: detuned synths that oscillate between playful and somber set to monumental soundscapes are the protagonists in ‘Castles of Illusion’.
The title track is an anthem to reminisce and get lost to. ‘Castles of Illusion‘ is a beautifully arranged ocean of hovering synths and washed-out atmospheres, a hypnotic dreamscape filled with feeling and nostalgia.
‘Variation in Modification‘ combines seeming opposites. A phasing carpet of synths sizzling with electricity set to heavenly guitar chords strike a compelling balance between energy and serenity.
For track three, Naeiiv unleashes a cascade of monumental energy. Heavily modulated synths and pads create the cinematic backdrop for a powerful arp to work its magic. ‘Magnetic Halls‘ is epochal, soaring, majestic.
‘Don’t Believe in Me‘ playfully breaks the four to the floor style with a percussion heavy beat set to morphing electric keys and an angelic choir. Deeply energetic, catchy, and with profound recognition value, ‘Don’t Believe in Me‘ has all the makings of a curveball secret weapon.
