Pacific Waves

High Contrast
The first of Johan’s now-traditional twice-annual Airscape check-ins has come a little later than usual this year. There’s a mass to appreciate on ‘Pacific Waves’, but it’s not a complete home run. The early sub-melodies are decent, but it’s only with the second one that its ether really begins to rise. The drop’s harmonics are very fine — beautifully arranged and sequenced, whilst the build sees it comfortably to the boil. Its kick-in though sounds a fraction too busy, zealous and ultimately overcooked.
