Massimo Ruberti - Granchite Yumtruso PT 2 published by Nostress Netlabel
Massimo Ruberti is an edgy and driven producer and composer, whose focus is a blend of creative electronic music.
His sound blurs the lines of conventional electronica, by including elements as diverse as ethnic influences, ambient textures, and other ideas. Recently, he published a brand new project titled “Granchite Yumtruso PT 2” which is the second part of the EP "Granchite Yumtruso PT. 1 ".
This release immediately strikes for the beautiful song artwork, but things get even better once you press the play button. The five songs that are featured on this remarkable EP have an edgy, dark and nocturnal feel, which reminds me of the work of artists such as Nine Inch Nails or Boards Of Canada, only to mention a few. However, the sound has a very cinematic feel to it, which reminds me of the soundtrack work of highly-regarded films, such as Blade Runner or Monster’s Ball, just to mention a couple. There is something really futuristic about this track, with synthesized textures, melodic grooves and very organic arrangement ideas that truly set the bar higher.
Opening track “Wilderness” sets the mood right, with its ethereal vibes and textures. The second song, “Falling”, follows along the same lines, elaborating on the melodic side of the concept. The next number, “Green Cave / Invocation”, has a slightly different approach. The rhythm section is decidedly more bold and prominent, and the drums resonate gigantic on this particular track, making for a tribal rhythm and a really engaging fast pace. The following track is titled “Seven Towers Winged Children”, and it takes a step back, with playful melodies and vocal samples of children that add ambiance and dimensionality. Last but not least, “Cosmic Egg Travelling Blues” has a solemn introduction with many choral vocals, which later explodes into a modern electronic track with a stadium vibe. A perfect ending to a diverse and rewarding release.

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
