Kick starting 2014 Ellum Audio get set to unleash the epic three tracker ‘Ys’ from Gardens of God, the new project from Lithuanian producer Mindaugas Lapinskis. Prepare to be carried on a journey through the dark and mysterious. Championed by Maceo Plex himself and already gaining huge reactions, each track builds a tapestry of electronic synths and emotive melodies above deep, dark pads and powerful percussions.
Title track ‘Ys’ is an dramatic builder pulsating with a strong beat as the eerie yet warm rounded chords subtly rise unveiling a moving and powerful electronic composition, richly exploring the depths and atmospherics created in the track.
Next up ‘Are We feat. Egle Sirvydyte’ hits with pacey percussion followed swiftly with an infectious bassline on a more uplifting tip. The beautifully smooth voice of Egle Sirvydyte floats effortlessly through the many layers adding that perfect standout element.
Following in clear line with the style of the EP ‘Apnea’ rounds off the package perfectly. A clear master when it comes to intricate production, deep chords intertwine and progress into a higher pitched refrain, all creating a real sense of melancholy and drama.
