To start off the week we have some the greatest melodic tracks from the past week…
ICONYC is delighted to welcome back Rafa’EL to the label with his brand-new ‘Diopside EP’. The talented Polish producer has been a well-known entity within the scene and have graced some of the world’s finest electronic music labels with his unique and timeless productions. On his return Rafa’EL leads with the outstanding ‘Diopside’; a stunning driving melodic progressive house affair. The track utilizes a deep groove as foundation, underpinned by a profound bass and smooth synth chords that gradually ease their way to the summit. Unified by a relentless kick drum and dusky atmospheric emotion, the composition climaxes by adding recurrent percussive elements and soft soaked melodies that come together to create a structured sphere of sonic satisfaction. Clever synth phrases complete the picture and create an ingeniously worked piece of art. The electronica downtempo soundscapes of the accompanying title track ‘A Matter of Time’ round off this spectacular release.
Lyra is a small constellation of the northern sky, whose brightest star is Vega. It gives orientation and guides you through the unknown. This constellation holds another less visible attraction. Exactly between the stars β and γ is the famous Ring Nebula M57. A beautiful play of colors created by ionized gas.
Observing the sky in the night let you think how all is connected and consider that there is so much more than what we see. A glimpse of infinity.
