Above The Vaulted Sky
The next chapter in the Telegraph chronicles comes from sunny Los Angeles. Konstantin Gabbro (of Orac and Adjunct fame) meets old friend Mikael Stavöstrand, who needs no introduction in the world of minimal tech house, for a 3 joints session spiced with frivolous sound design and knee-bending rhythms. The opening “Feedback”, featuring Dave Aju on vocals, relishing in contemporary sentiments and riding on acid lines, invites you to care and share while fully immersed in dance floor bliss. ”Nyssa” brings on a festive vibe, bouncing all around with house cabaret percussions, cooky synthesizer tweaks and a darling yet somewhat sloppy horn section. A valiant effort to lift your spirits up and shuffle your brain cells around. The title track “Above The Vaulted Sky” wraps the EP sending the listener into a contemplative orbit weaved with deep synth pads and the voices of mysterious medicine men, flying in weightlessness above the ever so dense realm of the material. All in all 23 minutes of elated, energetic and uncompromising house music!!!
