London-based producer John Monkman follows up appearances on the likes of Kompakt, Last Night On Earth and Anjunadeep with a huge debut on Maceo Plex’s Ellum.
‘Tune In Turn On’ leads the way. It’s a hugely detailed track with well programmed drums, layers of sci-fi synths, whispered vocal musings and a sense of intergalactic space travel that leaves you utterly captivated. It is future music with its own sense of colour and it makes a truly lasting impact.
The excellent ‘Enhancer’ is a beautiful track with soft synths darting about high in the sky like a neon aurora borealis. Brooding bass way down low adds a true sense of scale and meandering lead synths carry you away on a real musical trip. These are two masterfully melodic, cinematic dancefloor tracks that are filled with adventure.
