The cool factor about producer, composer and experimental artist Dylan Tauber’s work is that regardless that it’s on the experimental finish of EDM, it’s nonetheless EDM and it’s universally palettable. Oftentimes experimental music could be sharp or harsh, because the artist will get so caught up in experimenting with sound and the science of all of it, it fails to be music within the eyes and ears of some audiences. This isn’t the case with Tauber, whose pedigree is firmly rooted in advanced composition and sonic science, as a result of he’s additionally all the time enthusiastic about the fantastic thing about the composition. Maybe its his different disciplines like images and digital artwork; Tauber’s all the time concerning the total influence, and his new album He Loves Carmen, launched in April on his personal Son of Waves Studio imprint, definitely leaves and influence.
YEDM began following Tauber in 2017 when he launched the primary of his Sounds from Area albums, the second quantity of which was his most up-to-date album previous to He Loves Carmen. Earlier than that was one other notable collection referred to as Dolphin Trance, which is the place Tauber actually began to make his mark on trance and rave music. Previous to that, Tauber was rather more on the ambient finish of EDM and on the experimental finish of ambient, but it surely appears with He Loves Carmen, he’s dedicated to being a trancy pants, not less than for now.
Apparently impressed by his girlfriend, the manufacturing on He Loves Carmen is known as a new degree for Tauber. He’s actually acquired the ambient/experimental and dance world to meld this time. From the classic rave hints in album opener “Don’t Inform Me” to the 80s synthwave-inspired future bass of pseudo-title observe “I Love Carmen” to the rave pop of “Let It Go,” the coolness, synthy trance of He Loves Carmen has a strong, constant really feel with an emotive and heart-lifting base.
One of many principal causes He Loves Carmen has such a unified really feel and emotion to it, in addition to the way in which by which it feels so trendy regardless of all of the classic tones and tack is the vocalist Tauber collaborated with on the entire album. Ukrainian vocalist Anastasia Derkach has lent her distinctive and pitch-perfect vox to a couple tracks previous to connecting with Tauber, but it surely appears on this launch with him giving her carte blanche to essentially use her voice on a number of of the tracks like “I Miss You,” “I Love Carmen” and “All I would like Is You,” it actually galvanized the sensation of this album. Derkach has the type of voice that’s each childlike and timeless each trendy and classic and ties all of the kinds and sounds of He Loves Carmen collectively much more.
It feels odd to say that He Loves Carmen is perhaps Dylan Tauber’s greatest work to-date, principally as a result of one might say that about every of his 14 albums and it could all the time be true. Tauber’s a grasp of sound science and creates a brand new world of sound for every album he releases. For the EDM, set, nonetheless, this one will hit totally different. Expertly produced and full of gorgeous composition to maintain the tech nerds glad however effortlessly emotive and overlaying a variety of eras on the identical time, He Loves Carmen additionally occurs to slot in completely with what’s sizzling proper now in electronica. It’s type of a Hudson Mohawke impact, pushed as soon as once more by Derkach’s vocals: the emotion, the tech, the talent and the cool all simply come collectively right here, and it’s much more poignant that it’s impressed by love.
