Review: Definitely Mar io’s new EP, entitled ‘Twilight Of Ages’ is a masterpiece, an odyssey of electronic music. The release puts out 7 new tracks that goes from smooth atmospheric downbeat sounds to pleasant experimental tones of pure electronic music, that for sure will make you feel good. It is an EP that you have to listen to and enjoy. Incredible.
We come to February and of course new avant-garde releases see the light, not only do we share it, we select it especially because we are surprised by the proposal. Have you heard about Mar io\’s music? Well, this guy is a producer who has been producing almost all varieties of electronic music since 1992. After almost 20 years of music production this led to a lot of outstanding tracks.
At a time when our memories of sweaty club nights seem to stem from a parallel universe, it seems just fair that Mar io‘s new broque EP dedicates its heart and soul entirely to atmospheric downbeat electronica. Titled ‘Twilight Of Ages‘, this new EP brings out seven new tracks, already out.
‘Twilight of Ages‘ is full of reminiscences of the 90s, but rather than telling tales of dancefloor hysteria, it takes the turn right into the adjacent chillout rooms. Many may recall that the chillout of the 90s has been the time and place where soothing ambient spheres combined with an unhindered drive towards experimental electronica have made a long-lasting impact on contemporary music by constantly bending and blending genres ad sounds.
After his club-oriented EPs for labels such as Form & Terra, and last but not least his album on Broque, Mar io shows here that he has the potential to stand up to the likes of Plaid, Biosphere, The Orb and the whole Space Night posse.
With \’Space @ Night\’ he dedicates a track to Pascal F.E.O.S., who died surprisingly in 2020. F.E.O.S, apart from being well-known for his rave adventure, had been one of the driving forces behind the Space Night sound, together with Alex Azary and Gabriel Le Mar under the Aural Float moniker.
While \’Space @ Night\’ is representative for the high ambitions of the EP, gliding through time and space both dreamily and playfully, the EP as a whole resurrects the heyday of dubby atmospheric ambient sounds and playfully broken downbeats across seven diverse and enchanting tracks.
As such, the charms of ‘Twilight of Ages’ will delight and embrace everyone, by no means limited to those who have experienced the escapism of the 90s in chillout rooms rather than the dancefloor.“
