A analog musical prodigy with his ethnicity from Turkey, Denmark & Norway. I was asked if I could write a short review of this music, I happily accepted since I remembered listening to the original track and commented that this sound was similar in structure to some E-Mantra tracks, not the sound in itself (E-Mantra is pure goa while Material Music is IMO pure modern psytrance, some would say progressive goa) but storytelling wise I thought it shared some similarities. As you could expect from a very long track, there are some repetitive parts in the first half, until the 8th minute when comes out a hypnotic melody, and the final part which starts at the 12th minute with pure goa synths. The track is actually not too complex, melodies abound but you have to be patient and hear how they develop one after the other. The bassline is in the same spirit as what I remember from Ovnimoon (even though I am not too familiar with his music). Track 2 is a live version of almost 18 minutes, you can hear the crowd and all it was performed at MoonWeeD's Voice of Jupiter (Anjuna Records) album release party in Oslo, arranged by Love&Magic @ Vanguard on the 7th to the 8th of March in 2015. The intro is spectacular, more interesting and psychedelic that the original version. At the 3rd minute already it becomes much more goa and melodic with what I would call a "snake" synth playing around. All in all we get a more creative sound here with more experiments. The second half is pretty much the same as the original but a little more twisted and with that same hypnotic E-Mantra sound in the last part. Obviously the sound quality is less good but that's how it goes with a live version. The outro unleashes a scary synth (pad) similar to what you can hear in some Ubar tmar albums I won't comment much on track 3 since it is basically a short version of 6th minute. As always great job by Colin Bennun when it comes to mastering. All in all, the sounds in this EP hook your brain, and just when you get into the groove of one sequence, in comes another one, the tracks progress toward this quite restrained but energetic psytrance. I enjoyed it and will recommend you to have a listen on the following link and make your own opinion.
