Title: Return To Childhood
Format: CD
Label: Tympanik Audio (@)
Distributor: Ant-Zen
Rated: *****
Another new modern IDM/Electronica producer out of Poland got invited to release a full-length album via the Tympanik Audio family. Responsible behind this project is Maciej Pazkiewicz and his efforts draw an own and authentic sound dimension. You’ll get a full-scale layered Ambient album, featuring experimental sound consisting of surging, Downtempo-like rhythm patterns, melodic and dreamy piano drops, and dark processed strings and at times guitar sounds. This work sounds bombastic, dark, but also relatively organic to the same time. Even if some rhythm patterns seemed to be programmed by chance (”Understanding”), or with a high sense of improvisation, the generally clear song structures with at times catchy moments (”Keep Out No Entry”) resulting in a fitting unit for this rather experimental scenario. Highlighted by both above mentioned tracks, as well as the sample-infiltrated title track, ”Return To Childhood” isn’t definitely that sort of a futuristic end-time cyberspace-sounding work, but again a kind of special and demanding Electronica album. Once again the Tympanik Audio label provides a fascinating and extra-ordinary listening experience.
