Psymbionic releases Part 2 of “Parallels” [Eye], on Gravitas Recordings on July 1st, 2014. This second part of “Parallels” explores a parallel genre to that of a heavier bass influenced feel for Part 1. It revels an atmospheric creation of downtempo/chill feels, an experiment that illustrates Psymbionic’s versatility, a dive into another realm – a pull into the Eye of the Storm. The eye is a region of mostly calm weather at the center of strong tropical cyclones, and through sounds, John Burchman, expresses a deep meditation of fulfilling low tempo frequencies, a whirlwind of cloud hypnotization. Clear and light sounding extraterrestrial communication reveals futuristic visions of new-world change, enlightened transformations, and exploration of versatility. Versatility of production is rare, and when a product of rarity is illuminated, full-depth creativity is expressed giving the creator a sense of forward thinking and acceptance of change as important factor in culture in many fields of life- Psymbionic has done that with Eye.
Eye consists of 5 auditory chill out portals: “One Thing” ft Cristina Soto,”How Am I Not Myself” ft. Govinda, “S ilkscreen” ft. Soulular, “Sonder” ft. The Digital Connection, & “Silkscreen ( ill-esha remix ). One Thing ft. Cristina Soto is downtempo galore, a future chill trap experience ready to sooth your ear pineals. Psymbionic’s rhythmic future bass composition and fluidity blends passionately with Cristina Soto’s mesmerizing vocals as she touches your heart chakra with her deeply thought lyrics, an angelic escapade. How Am I Not Myself ft. Govinda is initiated by Govinda’s sensual frequencies resonating from string instrumentation of the violin. High-pitched synthesizer and a lively melodic tempo on Psymbionic’s behalf symmetrically syncs up in addition, and a spacey future garage atmosphere is present. This tune calmly sooth your present state of mind and will unblock passages of a forgotten memory.
Silkscreen ft. Soulular is a co-production between the two, a chill-step portal, a swim into infinity, a closer pull into the eye of the storm. Souluar’s organic sound composition and spacey sounding downtempo dubs mesh well with Psymbionic’s signature melodic uplifts and glitch/bass exposure, this is the creation of two soulful producers joining forces. Sonder ft. The Digital Connection is a spacey chill tale into the unknown, an epiphany within an epiphany. This is a future bass mystery waiting to be revealed and is felt within electronica ambience. Psymbionic’s signature sounds can be heard sporadically thoughout the tune, and a deep rhythmic glitch fusion of The Digital Connection follows through creating a liquid groove. Silkscreen remixed by ill-esha is a glitch masterpiece full of limitless synth frequencies and melodies. She produces a re-occurring glitch pattern which gives it a mind of its own, it’s a distinction of rarity illuminating the original production, an aftermath of chills down your spine.
Submerge into the eye of the storm and prepare for a lift-off into explorations of the sounds and tempos of the universe and beyond. Psymbionic reveals a downtempo/chill side to his music production in variation and style. Not only does he create variety in Part 2 of “Parallels”, but also a variety of styles and collaborations of accomplished vocalists, instrumentalists, and producers. John Burcham is a driven force of light that isn’t afraid to explore other dimensions of sound frequencies, a creative and fresh outlook. Like a thread weaving together with other threads, and like sacred geometrical patters coming together, a flowing towards a creation of warmth is revealed as Psymbionic weaves sounds, textures, and rhythms together. This results in the creation of pulsating and radiating sounds meant to trigger brainwaves, and therefore release and cleanse energies, a fresh feel of relief. The fact that this was written, mixed, AND mastered by John himself amazes me. As AfroMonk himself likes to put it, Keep it Fresh.
