Ethnic origins splash together in an electronic shin-dig reaching well into the realms of psychedelia. Crafty rhythms that loop in seamless spurts are glued up with swirling strings and oddly arpeggio forming keys which seem to bounce along like rubber ducks, peeing this way and that, scanning the musical bars for somewhere to warp over to. And that they do, everything is evolving all the time with this sound and it makes the sometimes dry aspect to digitally produced beat based music sit firmly on the back seat. If we listen, we detect the lack of organic feel, but we don't usually listen to trance psychedelia for the organic feel.
Hungarian music has its own folklore, scales, and rhythms, and these create the flare which distinguishes Operentzia from any other group of this genre. This is a positive aspect, as the traditions provide an extra layer of cultural heat, which when used properly as an add-in to the progression make something unique. Sometimes the sound is left asking for something new, and these bald spots in dance music always draw my attention to the DJ who needs places like this to do their creative work.
I'm not a DJ, so I just sit and wait patiently for what comes after. Something brand new starts the race once the teetering sonics are ended, and a fancy energy with a higher pace picks up from where we last heard something worth moving to. Perfection forms in the fills and frills added by all manner of percussion instruments and sonic effects, snappy beats catch the airwaves in easily honed in steps while fancy footwork from the synthesiser showers us in tingling sampled pulsations and formulate melodics.
Taking it easy with this album is a fine choice for any music fan but I do feel it has been written and produced for high volume maximum energy situations, it's versatile enough to suit the living room or the whole house and when it's sat down and listened to, the craftsmanship is something else again. A lot of work has gone into this, and it really sounds like it might have been worth it.
