GENERAL INFORMATION ===================== Album: Upward Falling Artist: Data Rebel Year: 2018 Genre / Style: Electronic / New Age / Ambient / Downtempo / IDM DESCRIPTION ================== Intelligent dance music may be horribly named but this percussive form of 90ΓÇÖs ambient techno is still with us and inspiring new generations of e-musicians. UK artist Dan Howe aka Data Rebel is one of them. He mixes the crisp, complex percussive clicks and thuds of early IDM with melancholic synth melodies and subtle backdrops of ethereal, arcing tones. How well an artist handles this kind of juxtaposition of rough and smooth is one of the marks of great IDM. On Upward Falling he handles it exceptionally well, keeping those elements in perfect tension as he weaves haunting, weeping lovely harmonic progressions through the middle of pieces like ΓÇ£AquaplaneΓÇ¥, ΓÇ£Summertime BluesΓÇ¥ and ΓÇ£GegenscheinΓÇ¥. One of his lead synth sounds resembles the glowing notes of a Rhodes piano, another is those signature bouncing IDM tones with delay and echo. These are great tunes, immaculately crafted in a very distinctive downtempo style. - Mike G. on December 1, 2019 ; http://ambientmusicguide.com/blog/best-albums-2019-upward-falliing/ FILE INFORMATION ===================== Number of Tracks: 10 Total Duration: 49:12 Total Size: 117 MBs (including scans, m3u, and txt) Parity Archive: Yes, 7% Ripped By: NMR Files Created on: NMR Ripped With: NMR Encoded At: 320k CBR / 44.1 KHz ID3 Tags: Yes TXT Created: 23 May 2021 Tracklist ------------------------- 01) Intro 02) Summer Blues 03) Gegenschein 04) Jitter 05) Upward Falling 06) Raining Stars 07) Aquaplane 08) Switch 09) Echo 10) Lost Thoughts POSTING ===================== Reposting Rules: Please wait at least 48 hours before requesting additional pars or reposting.
