Leave Me Alone (Dream Mix), Ascension tarafından sakin ve akıcı playlistler için üretilmiş Indie Electronic türünde bir parçadır. Parça Fluid Funk Recordings etiketiyle 20.10.2023 tarihinde yayına girdi.
Back to the fold after dropping his maiden EP on Fluid Funk in 2022, Amsterdam-based vibes merchant Yigal Roos aka Ascension turns up on Fluid Electronics with his newest five-tracker, ‘Leave Me Alone’. Combining the spaciousness of keyboard-driven abstraction with the impeccable groove know-how of loungey house music, this new EP from the Dutch producer engineers a clever mix of groove and oneirism, intriguingly busting the frontier between full-blown dance floor functionality and a more prismatic, multi-faceted approach. On the menu of this far-reaching travel in sound, four OG versions from the Dam’s maestro plus a pulsating remix from Fluid Electronics affiliate, Gerwin van Engelenburg.
Leading the charge, the lead single and title-track ‘Leave Me Alone’ comes in two variants – i.e. the ‘Raw Club’ and ‘Dream’ mixes, each of which indeed respectively offer a bass-laden treat of FX-riddled synth chords cascading in cinematic motion and a truly immersive session of further vaporous downtempo escapism. Meanwhile, Gerwin van Engelenburg’s remix reels off as the perfect combo of both tracks’ characteristics, revving up the tempo past and above the dance-ready 120BPM threshold as it extends its cosmonautical ambience and extra-terrestrial punch to dazzling effect.
Merging eerie soundscapes with off-kilter bass onslaughts from the deep, odd piano stabs and radar-jamming subaquatic echoes, ’Trying To Get That Louie Vega’ showcases Roos’ most experimental-leaning facet. An odd mixture of left-of-centre boogie and sunken ambiences, scanning out the confines of DJ-friendliness and non-formulaic modular trial-and-error. Perhaps the most spitting example of Ascension’s talent for crafting club-ready weirdo weapons, ‘Groovy Duke’ blends in RnB-adjacent, Rhodes-borne melodies and Sino-flavoured harmonics with sudden slides and accelerations straight out an IDM-oriented headspace; violent gusts of bass and thunderous drums slashing their way into the scenery like a tree tearing down the roof.
