‘Journeys’ new album by Divine Matrix, label AD Music, in Peaceful Radio Show 1487
28 April 2022 Artists
‘Journeys’ is another masterful creation by Divine Matrix, continuing the UK
synthesist’s unique vision of ambient, electronic space music.
From the opening base pulse of ‘Blue Horizon’, with delightful sequences and
catchy rhythm, the listener is hooked. The high quality continues as ‘Fast Train
To Tokyo’ captivates with it glorious rhythm and base. The music is again
underpinned with memorable sequences driving the track forward.
The next three tracks slow things right down, taking the listener into more
‘contemplative’, ambient style music. They are no less involving though, and
titles like ‘Gliding On Thermals’ and ‘River From Source To Sea’ are as
evocative as their titles imply.
The tempo picks up again with ‘One Small Step’ and the exquisite musical
odyssey continues with gentle rhythmic motion through ‘Walkabout’ and ‘A Path
Less Trodden’ through to ‘Journeys End’. Each track is a wonderful, colourful
vignette that confirms Divine Matrix as a purveyor of quality electronic music.
Music that is both modern in style and technique, yet which also cleverly recalls
the classic 80’s style of Tangerine Dream and other luminaries of the genre.
