Olivier Giacomotto – Postgalactic [Noir Music]
Giacomotto’s “Postgalactic” is a collection of four synth heavy, loud, and in-your-face tech house tracks. Giacomotto lays on the effects quite thick, using reverb to give his tracks a spacious and open feel to them. Bipolar Star is a very good example of this and combines elements of space-age dance, with deep bass-lines to give the listener an interstellar experience as they listen to it. A common element in this release is distorted, grimy, and detailed synths and Bipolar Star brings these out in full effect. Going from a spacious break, to a loud and musically thick drop, it switches the energy up quite often and keeps the track interesting and lively. The namesake track takes things a bit deeper, yet still keeps that wonderfully crunchy synth sound. This time, it brings in more lower-end instruments and also adds a deep bass-line that gives the track and incredible sonic range. It’s intense, it’s dark, and a lot of fun to listen to as it is also rhythmically satisfying. Interplanetary’s bass-line is too deep to even hear through laptop speakers so don’t even think about listening to this without a subwoofer or good headphones. But, this is the best release of the track. Interplanetary’s bass-line destroys worlds and rips apart club walls in one of the best produced bass-lines I have heard in a long time. Buy this track. Finally, Worldology brings the mood back up with a much lighter and melodic synth-focused track. While great producing overall, this track ends up being the red-headed stepchild of the bunch as it doesn’t seem all that unique after the first two tracks in the release.
The word? Great release. Give it a listen at least, and Interplanetary is a must-buy for dance music enthusiasts.
