Borealis – Glittervoice (2013)


Borealis - Glittervoice (2013) cover

A two hour mix Borealis (Jesse Somfay) recently compiled for Fenomena Studio goes a long way to explain what has changed in his music since last year’s murky, dubstep-inspired Voidness. The mix is expectedly eclectic, but an overwhelming presence of hard, intense dance music lies at odds with Somfay’s hazily downtempo aesthetic. With the mix in mind Glittervoice suddenly adopts an improved narrative, principally because anything is an improvement on the previous “confused.”Glittervoice comes across as Somfay revisiting old ground from a completely new direction. Once again, his work under the Borealis moniker owes much of its content to hypnotic drum loops and intensely layered, smoky synth swells, but where Voidnessdrew inspiration from the post-Burial dubstep scene Glittervoice switches it for club-ready techno, trance and even hip-hop. The outcome is a style of music chasing the raver’s enlightenment: where the individual is completely absorbed in the music’s flow to the point even the most heavy tracks will feel serenely perfect…muzikdizcovery
