An interesting release arrives at #294 from guest artist 'Frederik Behr'. Glass Marble is interesting in the way that there is several different styles apparent throughout the 39 minutes playing time, but instead of different styles in different tracks, different styles are combined.
Starting off with a subtle (but seriously addictive) piano melody in the 'Alleyways' which you'll find yourself remembering for days and kicking it into the electronic age with a powerful bassline, the scene is set for the rest of the ep.
Ambient warmth appears in 'Wooden Marble' which leads onto an even more curious track 'Heart Valve' - if imitation is a sincere form of flattery then this is probably the closest I've ever heard of a tribute to 'Bad Loop' by another artist. If you're familiar with the artist that created Kahvi classic 'Lumme' you'll recognise this style immediately.
Tracks of choice in this ep: all, but 80's crush (track 5) has one of the meatiest basslines I've heard in a long while. Definately one for the high volume!
I&ve read some of Irť821&as material on how he got started in the business and have heard him comment on the sound clip he uses in this vid. I&ve actually used some of the advice I&ve heard him give on how to introduce a topic. How he tries to start a story with an unexpected statement to grab interest. He&s a master at that.

Awesome! I've had this on repeat for the past few days. My favorite track so far is 'Deep Sea Diver'.

A well deserved five star from me for transforming my lifeless and cold office to a colorful aquarium of sound with melodies swimming around like colorful fish of the Caribbean.
