Newest signing to Sasha’s Last Night On Earth label, Henry Saiz, readies his ‘Appreciation’ EP. Two tracks that traverse the intricacies of melodic writing through explorative synthesis and delightful minimalism.
Henry leads with ‘Iridiscent’. The monumental voyage begins with steady kicks and splashy, rolling tambourines providing the backbeat for an ominous synth exploration. The crisp leads contrast pounding toms in the breakdowns and develop through with slowly changing timbres. Fusing in uplifting harmonies to the complex web of interlocking synth lines, the genius of Henry’s writing comes from the amalgamation of different rhythmic patterns throughout this anthemic composition.
‘Voice of A Gentle Breeze’ follows, where modular synth grooves meet eastern influenced improvisational leads. Bright, fluffy drums steer the course while warm, trancey chord progressions bring the emotion. Trippy vocal lines drift atop, barely distinguishable and bring a haunting sense of melody and semantics with no needed lyrics, a genius touch to this delicate piece of music.
